Wind developments remain a staple of renewable energy developments all over the world, with turbine dimensions continuing to increase. New developments and repowering developments alike are subject to numerous constraints, including potential adverse impacts on people and infrastructure in their vicinity. Common requirements include evaluation of impacts on aviation infrastructure including collision risk and radar interference, adverse impacts on surrounding telecommunications and shadow flicker effects at nearby dwellings.
Wind developments, of any scale, are routinely required to demonstrate that they will not cause negative impacts in their immediate environment. Common areas that require careful attention are the potential for turbines to interfere with aviation interests such as radar, navigation aids and flight procedures, degradation of television services or mobile telephony and impacts on residential amenity due to shadow flicker effects. Pager Power has been supporting wind developers by providing technical assessments, advice and representation since the early 2000s.
