What are the environmental , social and economic impacts of wind power? MYSEEC (My Shared Ecological Education Centre) has students doing impact assessments of systems they choose to study. One is wind power. Any special discussion directions of research/policy, or reports, for advanced Grade 7/8? Thank-you...

I have only just joined the SIAHub so your forum topic may have lapsed by now.
If it is of any interest, I have led several wind farm SIA's in NZ - for one I have a written report, for two others I have expert witness statements of evidence which I presented.
One of my assessments involved a couple of surveys:(i) experience of existing wind farms and attitudes to further wind farm development; and (ii) distance-related assessment of adverse visual and noise effects on neighbours.
let me know if you are interested.
