The use of proxy measurements to determine wind farm noise compliance - what are the options and is there a need for further guidance?

TNEI presented a paper at the Institute of Acoustics' annual conference earlier this year: The use of proxy measurements to determine wind farm noise compliance - what are the options and is there a need for further guidance?

As more wind farms are built in the UK the requirement for noise compliance monitoring is increasing. Compliance monitoring is usually undertaken for one of three reasons: 1) the wind farm operator undertakes the assessment voluntarily as part post commissioning works; 2) monitoring is required to satisfy a planning condition; or, 3) monitoring is required following receipt of a complaint relating to noise. 

This paper was authored by James Mackay, Moise Coulon and Jason Baldwin.
