Project Description

The project builds on previous research supported by SEAI with the ultimate aim of creating of a national centre for wind energy research in Ireland through the delivery of specific tasks in 2016. The tasks will focus on developing research on wind turbine noise specifically enhancing software tools, noise codes, and providing a technical underpinning for policy around turbine noise. The medium to long-term vision is a national centre for wind energy research supporting policy work and a renewables technology development eco-system for Ireland. The project objectives; Further development of open software for includes assessment, noise and turbine design/operation tools.; Further development of wind turbine noise research software tools as part of this same system.; New IEA Task on Quiet Wind Turbine Technology leading to technical underpinning for policy around turbine environment noise.; IEA Task 11 expert meeting on quiet wind turbine technology; Development of national wind research effort with a Wind Academy; Conference/workshop on Distributed Wind/Energy; Secure the long-term stability of this work programme.;
