Credible mitigation options are needed to allow wind farms and airport radars to co-exist. Dr Clive A Jackson, Wind Farms Technical Authority at BAE Systems, explains how harmony can be achieved.Wind farms are likely to be a significant contributor to the future global energy mix if targets for reducing global carbon emissions are to be met, and as a result, we’re likely to see more on- and offshore wind farms springing up. However, before wind farms can be constructed, they are subject to local and national planning regulations.In many countries, these require environmental and economic impact assessments. Of particular relevance to wind farms is the potential impact they may have on air safety. Aviation organisations are thus often consulted and may object during the statutory planning process. More than 50 per cent of wind farm planning applications in the UK fail or are significantly delayed due to aviation objections, and similar concerns exist internationally.
