Abstract

Annoyance, recognition and detection of noise from a single wind turbine were studied by means of a two-stage listening experiment with 50 participants with normal hearing abilities. In-situ recordings made at close distance from a 1.8-MW wind turbine operating at 22 rpm were mixed with road...

Abstract

While wind energy production is relatively free from environmental externalities such as air pollution, it is frequently considered to negatively impact landscapes' visual aesthetic values, thereby inducing negative effects on tourism demand. Existing evidence for Germany indeed points towards a...

Abstract

Most research to elicit citizen's reactions to proposed windfarms use either no visuals (relying on text) or static representations (e.g., 2-D photos or drawings); we develop and test a virtual reality (VR) tool to determine whether increased information - in the form of VR - alters tourists'...

Abstract

Although the use of wind-turbines is widely accepted as generating clean and sustainable energy, when windfarms are sited in rural areas they are frequently opposed by locals because of their negative impacts, including on tourism. There is, however, little academic research on the role and...

Abstract

Over the last decades the harnessing of wind power has gained increasing popularity and is currently believed to be one of world's best environmental options in seeking to meet the international target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least half by the year 2050. There is undeniably an...
