Don't miss Country Manager & Director of TNEI Ireland Dearbhla O'Brien present 'Constraints: What Motivates You?' at 10:20am on the 15th April.
On the 14th April at 3pm Director of Engineering & Environment, James Mackay will also be hosting a 'meet the expert session' on the noise element of the WEDGs. Following the publication of the draft update to the Wind Energy Development Guidelines at the start of 2020, there has been no further information regarding timescales for publication of a final document. A number of concerns / queries have been raised regarding the noise section of the draft update and further work is required to ensure that the guidance is clear and robust. Whilst the industry awaits further updates, developers, consultants and consenting authorities are taking a variety of approaches to assess proposed developments. Should assessments use the existing WEDGs (from 2006), the draft update (from 2019) with assumptions made regarding sections which require further work or should consideration be given to other international guidance like ETSU-R-97 (as used in the UK)?
