Description

Electricity from wind energy is a significant and growing contributor to sustainable energy production all over the world. The coexistence of wind turbines with systems using radiowaves is a major concern however. Because of their size, complex composition and fast rotating blades, the impact of wind turbines on radiowaves is difficult to predict. To mitigate the wind turbine impacts on radar signatures, to differentiate the Doppler signature of a UAV from the one of a wind turbine, to anticipate the effects of a wind farm on a radiowave-based system, to exclude wind turbine signatures from meteorological forecasts are among the many problems that must be addressed. This year's EMWT® 21 specialist meeting, held in Zürich, Switzerland, is the opportunity to gather experts and researchers in this area of expertise for fruitful discussions and sharing ideas.
