The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has provided guidance in the topic of wind farms and human health, as has the Australian Medical Association.

The NHMRC has also recently announced funding for two research projects, namely:

  • Multidimensional assessment of the health Impacts of infrasound: Two randomised controlled trials, managed by the University of New South Wales; and
  • Establishing the physiological and sleep disruption characteristics of wind farm versus traffic noise disturbances in sleep, managed by The Flinders University of South Australia. For further information on this study, visit the Wind Farm Study website.
