Wind energy is now seriously being considered as a possible alternative to current power sources. The number of wind farms both in the UK and worldwide are increasing and research and development into wind energy is being carried out by industry, academic institutions, government research establishments and private investors worldwide. This publication contains 68 papers that were presented at the 18th British Wind Energy Association Conference, held at Exeter University, September 1996. The topics include electricity markets, environmental and public relations, integration, wind turbine design, resource, noise and wind farm performance/design.


Part 1 Electricity markets: the UK electricity market and the wind industry - a perspective on 1998 proposals, S.L. Batley et al; trading green electricity, M. Davies; a study of the financial viability of grid-connected wind turbines for farmers, A.G.M. Hunter et al; survey of employment in the UK wind energy industry, G. Jenkins; the electricity market - wind energy after NFFO and in liberalized markets, J.H. Johns; value of wind generated electricity, G. Strbac et al; geographically distributed wind farms - their future development, R. Tudway. Part 2 Stand alone/novel: model development and controlled design for the proven 2.2kW wind turbine, S.H. Lloyd and D.G. Infield; use of air jet vortex generators leading to improved energy capture and power regulation of a wind turbine, A. Oliver et al; computer modelling of a concentrator wind turbine system, D.A. Olivieri and P.J. Lamont; a hysteresis-free wind pump, A.C. Dowell and C.E. Oram; a counter-rotating axial-airgap induction generator using pole changing windings for developing country use, S.N. Dunnett and A.E. Corbett; self-regulating composite rotor for a small wind turbine, J.B. Feuchtwang and D.G. Infield; structural design, manufacture and testing of resin transfer moulded blades for small wind turbines, M.E. Bechly et al; field testing of a prototype 5kW wind turbine, M.E. Bechly et al; analysis of the potential for wind and solar energy systems in Antarctica, C. Brown et al; validation of computer modelling of a combined energy generation system using wind turbines, D. Child and D.G. Infield; wind power for desalination - a potential market, D.G. Infield. Part 3 Environmental and public relations: landscapes with wind farms - a view from mid-Wales, A.L. Burton; wind energy - environmental impact - the UK experience and the EU perspective, S.C. Holmes; the cost of visual impact - implications for the siting of wind turbines, S. Tribe et al; environmental criteria for wind farm development, P. Hinson and A. Lloyd; wind farm public opinion canvassing - results and analysis of recent surveys, S. Powles et al; analysis of press clippings (1st Jan-14th May 1996), G. Hartnell; birds, wind farms and Blyth Harbour, D. Still et al; optimal site selection for wind farms - the role for geographical information systems, D.B. Kidner; a GIS tool for the economic assessment of renewable technologies, F. Mahmmud et al; windfarm design in the light of previous experience, A. Lloyd; the visual impact of Taff Ely wind farm - a case study using GIS, D.B. Kidner. Part 4 Integration: capacity credits - clarifying the issues, D. Milborrow; geographically distributed wind farms - technical issues, D. Milborrow et al; wind farm power quality and network interaction, M. Davidson; the integration of renewable energy technologies in Wales - the ARIES project, C.J. Peasley; network models for prediction of flicker from wind turbines, Z. Saad-Saoud et (Part contents)
