At Sound Solution Consultants we’ve provided numerous renewable energy assessments in England, Wales and Scotland covering hydropower and wind energy.
The process involved in preparing a noise impact assessment for renewable energy follows a similar process regardless of the technology:
Review of baseline environmental conditions at nearest noise-sensitive receivers from a site-based survey
Prediction of noise from proposed renewable source(s) (e.g. ISO 9613) using manufacturers or measured data of similar schemes
Assessment of impacts in accordance with applicable guidance
Review of commensurate mitigation measures to achieve compliance with Local Authority policy or guidance criteria
We can produce complex computer modelling of proposed renewable energy developments as to graphically illustrate sound propagation in the environment. We use IMMI noise modelling and mapping software in our Environmental Noise Modelling.
In recent years, we’ve assisted our valued client base in the creation of numerous micro hydro schemes utilising Archimedean screw turbines throughout the UK. We consider ourselves to be specialists in noise assessment and abatement of this form of renewable energy development.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all the extra help you have given me in dealing with my rather sensitive issue of noise transmission to my downstairs neighbour. It has been invaluable. In recognition, I have made a £50 donation to the charity: Action on Hearing Loss.
Have worked with Sound Solution for the last 7 years and have found them to be very professional and excellent at their work. Always happy to provide me with advice pre and post purchasing new buildings and during development projects. We have worked on various scale of projects and so far have found nothing that phases them. The reports are well written, clear and easy to follow. A great asset to our extended team.
We are delighted to work with SCC Ltd in resolving the ever more complex requirements for careful acoustic design. Their knowledge coupled with a helpful approach assists us in delivering tailored solutions which fit within our design constraints.
We have been working with Sound Solutions for a few years now, as they offer a professional and consistent service. They are always happy to respond to site-based questions and are quick to reply to emails and phone calls. It is reassuring to our clients that they provide both the specification prior to construction and test on completion.
We have worked with Mark and the team at Sound Solutions for many years and have always been very happy with their professional service and first-rate advice. I have personally recommended them to many other clients.
