But in Germany, experts aren't convinced that infranoise poses a threat.ENERCON E-82: Pulsed Noise .358932012-08-28T16:54:25Z2012-08-28T16:54:25ZEnercon, Europe's largest wind turbine manufacturer, has a problem: The decision of the Bavarian Higher Regional Court in Munich about the wind turbine in Kienberg points out that in the E 82 turbine emits pulsed noise. Therefore to any actually measured sound level three decibels would have to be added.Wind farms feel the chill of public rejection.1292004-04-05T20:24:53Z2004-04-05T20:24:53ZThey introduced the world to "environmentally friendly" energy, but now some of Europe's "greenest" countries are under pressure to backtrack on wind farms as public anger grows over their impact on the countryside.The Wind Power Debate Continues to Produce Crosswinds of Controversy.76212007-01-27T14:57:46Z2007-01-27T14:57:46ZFrom Barton, Vermont, to the German border with Denmark and from the shores of Lake Huron, to the Romney Marches of southern England, wind power advocates are fighting crosswinds from local residents.
In Barton in mid-January, a referendum overwhelmingly rejected the wind power turbines that were planned near this upper Vermont community. ...In Germany, where one-third of the world's current wind power is generated, doubters have provoked a loud debate. The company that owns the grid that includes nearly half the wind-farms in Germany reported its wind farms generated only 11 percent of their capacity. The company said the winds vary so much the wind farm had to be backed 80 percent by the conventional power grid.
