Following the success of the workshops on resource assessment (Brussels, May 2011) and post-construction assessment (Lyon, July 2012), EWEA's third technology workshop will provide a unique, industry-only forum within which to discuss the key acoustic issues currently facing the industry.


The workshop will take place over one and a half days with five sessions focusing on:

  • Wind Turbine Noise at Source - The Impact of the Design
  • Wind Farm Design - Being a Good Neighbour
  • Real-World Noise Measurements - Emission and Immission
  • National Guidelines and Human Perception of Noise
  • New session: Noise Issues Offshore

Full programme and presenters

A specialist audience
The programme includes ample time for discussion and debate with participants as well as plenty of networking opportunities with an audience of 200+ specialists with an interest in wind farm noise, including:

  • Turbine & supply chain manufacturers - aero-acousticians, mechanical engineers
  • Project developers - noise analysts, wind farm designers, developers;
  • Merchant banks / finance houses - risk assessors;
  • Acoustic consultancies - noise analysts, wind farm designers.

Another of the ways in which EWEA supports the industry!
In addition to representing the views of the industry to the EU-institutions and issuing in-depth reports and studies, EWEA organises technology workshops such as this solely to satisfy requests from its members for quality debates on the issues that matter most.

And it's half the price of other similar events!
EWEA technology workshops are excellent value for money and are typically half the price
of those offered by commercial organisers. As the industry's non-profit association in
Europe, EWEA can hold these workshops thanks to the continued support of its members.

Register before 15 October at early rates
