Abstract/Summary

The construction of wind farms is on the rise. According to the UK Wind Energy Database (UKWED) 1, 4366 onshore wind turbines are currently operating at 584 sites in the UK, with a total onshore capacity of 7172 MW. In addition, 722 turbines (79 onshore) are under construction, and a further 2305 (814 onshore) where construction approval has already been granted. The growing development of onshore wind farms is often controversial, particularly in relation to concerns over their environmental impact. This is a matter for the planning approval process; but where approval is granted, construction can have some significant but unintentional geological benefits
