Acceptance. However, as in the case of viewshed effects, the results point in different directions. Jacquet (2012) finds that distance to existing wind farms increases acceptance. Ladenburg and M¨oller (2011) find mixed effects, but a general decrease in acceptance of existing offshore wind farms as a function of the distance. Andersen et al. (1997) find that acceptance of a new turbine decreases with the distance to the nearest existing wind turbine. Warren et al. (2005) find negative effects from distance toward existing wind farms, while Johansson and Laike (2007) do not find an effect from distance in relation to the general attitude toward wind power.

2008) find no effect from experience with wind power, biomass, or nuclear energy on the demand for the different energy sources. Accordingly, having lived near, for example, a wind turbine and having hands-on experience with the potential disamenities such as noise, flickering, or general visual impacts have not shaped the preferences/relative levels of acceptance compared to respondents who do not have these experiences. However, they find that respondents who have seen a gas or coal power station have a significantly higher demand for low carbon technologies relative to respondents who have not seen a gas or coal power station.

8 shows a wind vector histogram for Spring. It shows that westerlies are the predominant wind pattern but also have a large reading at zero. 9 shows the differenced wind vector’s histogram. It resembles a Laplacian distribution, which shows a marked likelihood for little or no alteration. This resulted in much better predictions. Using histograms such as these, it is possible to create a probabilistic model to develop additional data should it be required for training at a later stage. 5 minutes.
