Gone with the wind? Wind farm–induced wakes and regulatory gaps

Author:  Finserås, Eirik; et al.

Abstract – Wind farm–induced wakes can propagate dozens of kilometres, decreasing the power production and the fatigue lifetime of wind turbines between neighbouring farms. This phenomenon termed hereinafter “wind theft”, may lead to legal conflicts between wind farm operators and even States as power production from a wind farm is affected by the wake effects generated by another, reducing power output. Wind theft can substantially slow down the development of offshore wind if it is not regulated by a clear legal . . .

Implementation of the issue of noise from wind turbines at low frequencies

Author:  Marini, Martino; et al.

ABSTRACT— The enduring energy scenario leads to further promote the development of the exploitation of renewable energy sources. Recent European standards have been defining a path to reach in 2050 a level of decarbonization lower of 80% compared to 1990. Wind farms have been growing quickly for [the] last decade with individual wind turbines getting larger and larger. In addition to the benefits of containing greenhouse gas emissions and restraining the use of depletable resources, drawbacks have also appeared due . . .

Long-term wind turbine noise exposure and the risk of incident atrial fibrillation in the Danish Nurse cohort

Author:  Bräuner, Elvira; et al.

Highlights Long-term exposure to wind turbine noise was linked to incidence of atrial fibrillation in the Danish Nurse Cohort of 28,731 nurses. Nurses exposed to wind turbine noise levels ≥20 dB, compared to 25 dB. Abstract BACKGROUND: The potential health effects related to wind turbine noise (WTN) have received increased focus during the past decades, but evidence is sparse. We examined the association between long-term exposure to wind turbine noise and incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS: First ever hospital admission of . . .

Impact of Long-Term Exposure to Wind Turbine Noise on Redemption of Sleep Medication and Antidepressants: A Nationwide Cohort Study

Author:  Poulsen, Aslak Harbo; et al.

BACKGROUND: Noise from wind turbines (WTs) is associated with annoyance and, potentially, sleep disturbances. OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to investigate whether long-term WT noise (WTN) exposure is associated with the redemption of prescriptions for sleep medication and antidepressants. METHODS: For all Danish dwellings within a radius of 20-WT heights and for 25% of randomly selected dwellings within a radius of 20-to 40-WT heights, we estimated nighttime outdoor and low-frequency (LF) indoor WTN, using information on WT type and simulated hourly . . .
