Wind turbine noise and what to do about it

To reduce CO2 emission from fossil energy and alleviate global warming, targets in most countries are very ambi­tious with 100% renewable energy in 2050. As the pioneer in renewable energies, wind energy is developing very fast. This means there will be important installations of wind turbines in the near future.

The challenges of wind energy include both lowering costs and ensuring a high degree of social acceptance, where the noise aspect is of major importance in particular for onshore turbines. To improve the cost of energy, the size of wind turbines is constantly growing. Consequently, scientific advancements are needed for developing advanced numerical tools for designing efficient and low-noise wind turbines and wind farms. This lecture aims at giving the state of the art in the research areas of noise generation, propagation and reduction, and describing the future scientific needs for such developments.
