Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

This paper describes a proposed method of developing a quantitative analysis system to facilitate the comparison of different wind turbine concept designs. It is known that the manufacturing processes of making a wind turbine contribute a significant proportion of the impact of the environment, costs and energy usage. This proposed method is therefore focus on this area and developing a method to support initial assessments of multiple design concepts. This method will allow a designer to select and develop a “greener” wind turbine. Furthermore, the proposed approach could potentially be used to minimise the carbon footprints of major engineering projects such as wind farms.
