In order to be able to determine the health impacts of wind turbines it is important to investigate various aspects, the most important of which is the noise produced by the wind turbine. A distinction is made between regular noise and low-frequency noise. In addition, shadow flicker and non-acoustic aspects play a role.
The aspects to consider are:
- low-frequency noise and vibrations
- shadow and “flicker” of the rotating blades
- other non-acoustic factors
