The last wind turbine noise conference was held in Lisbon in 2019; too far and too expensive for most of us in the UK but next year it is in Dublin! Hopefully some objectors will manage to attend even if it is only to tell your own story and/or give your opinion. Remember the Post Conference Report from 2019 said: More neighbours of windfarms would be welcome. It’s hard to take people’s opinions into account if they don’t come and talk to us. There are plenty of wind farm neighbours in Ireland!

Ninth International Conference on Wind Turbine Noise.
Calling for Papers – Submit your Abstract by 20th November 2020
For our ninth conference we are in Dublin, capital of the Irish Republic. The hotel is ten minutes from the airport but with a bus service every ten minutes to the city centre. For those wanting to stay on site there is the conference hotel or the Holiday Inn Express next door.
The conferences attract delegates from the fields of manufacturing, planning development, academia and research and the environment as well as pressure groups, consultants and exhibitors. WTN2021 will provide an opportunity for all those with an interest in wind turbine noise, to present their work, to see and hear other’s work and to meet together and discuss common problems and solutions. We are now accepting abstracts via the conference website and the abstract deadline is 20th November 2020.
Subjects for presentations can be anything related to wind turbine noise – its generation, its prediction, its assessment and its effects on people. After Lisbon it was apparent that some people wanted more work on noise reduction of turbines and on development of more accurate propagation models. And we need more quantitative information on the impact of AM on
With the new draft Irish guidelines and other proposals round Europe, you might want to look at the current state of Regulations. But the choice is yours.
