La visibilité des éoliennes affecte-t-elle la santé des riverains ? Volume 18, issue 4, July-August 2019



This news is based on the following article: Freiberg A, Schefter C, Hegewald J, Seidler A. The influence of wind turbine visibility on the health of local residents: a systematic review. Int Arch Occup Environ Health 2019 Jan 23. doi : 10.1007/s00420-019-01403-w


After reviewing the existing literature, the authors of this article call for better quality research to measure the effect of direct or indirect wind turbine visibility on the health of local populations. According to current knowledge, wind turbine visibility can be associated with annoyance, and less evidently, with sleep disorders, which could result from the annoyance.
