TremAc Joint Project Launched

How much noise is produced by Wind Turbines?

Wind turbines emit sound and vibrations. The TremAc joint project investigates how they are related and how they can be better predicted and reduced

Wind energy is to have a major share in the future renewable energy mix. The TremAc project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), will aim to improve planning, development and acceptance of wind turbines and to develop objective criteria for their emissions. To this end, experts will investigate the interaction between acoustic and seismic vibrations of wind turbines and plan to create a calculation model that includes both kinds of emission.
