  • Are motorways the best spot for wind turbines?

    Wind turbine noise can be detected at low levels, even when it is heard alongside motorway traffic noise, a study finds. It is possible for louder motorways to drown out turbine noise, however. The participants in this listening experiment could easily detect wind turbine noise, but only once they knew it was present in recordings of environmental noise. Public annoyance with wind turbine noise ...

  • Maintenance free domestic wind turbines released

    We have improved our SW3-5 domestic wind turbines models. Our small wind turbines are now maintenance-free!. Since their origins, our domestic wind turbines have not had any mechanical part susceptible to requiere high periodically scheduled maintenance. This fact has permited our small wind tubines to had a reduced maintenance: only lubricate the bearing on the yaw system ...


  • Wind turbine proposals to be seen by communities first

    Communities will have a much greater say over wind turbine proposals and siting when early consultation between local people and developers becomes compulsory. Many communities feel forced to consider wind farm and turbine plans they have had no part in shaping, and want early and open discussions with developers to influence proposals and to improve the outcome for their area. Planning works ...

  • Making wind turbines builds career interest

    The wind turbine that Louis Solis and Jose Santistevan fashioned in about 20 minutes promptly registered a 5.1 on the voltage meter in their Denver West High School classroom, tops in the class. But Solis and Santistevan, both 17-year-old juniors, were determined they could do better. So, they bent and trimmed the balsa wood, flattened the angles on the blades, and tried again. They flipped on ...

  • Measuring emotional response and acceptance of wind turbines

    Wind energy will likely continue to play a leading role in reaching the EU’s renewable energy targets. However, in some areas wind turbines face social opposition based in large part on the visual impact of wind turbines in the landscape. A new study outlines a novel methodology to measure emotional response to wind turbine visuals, which may assist wind farm planners in gauging public ...
