09:00 - 10:30 Noise and visual impacts and you as the local resident
Environmental impacts & social acceptance
Room: C 2.2
This session will explore various technologies and methodologies to analyse and mitigate noise and visual impacts of wind farms. It will focus in particular on the capacity of the various technologies to foster acceptance among citizens living around a wind farm. Preventing negative impacts of wind farms on people means reducing noise and visual impact.
Chair and speakers will involve the audience by discussing the various examples of projects using these technologies. With the help of these examples, we will try to find out why certain technologies help to foster acceptance while others do not.
You attended this session?
- Apply two new methodologies when analysing visual impact;
- Consider application of three approaches when analysing noise impacts;
- Explain ways of reducing noise and visual impact;
- Distinguish effective and less effective technologies for various kinds of wind power projects.
