Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Europe leads the world on wind turbine technology, development and deployment, especially offshore, so it is no surprise that the European Wind Energy Conference (EWEC) is the most important annual event for this fast growing sector. On behalf of IET Renewable Power Generation (RPG) we are pleased to present the second successive EWEC special issue, based on selected papers presented at EWEC 2008 that have been refereed and suitably extended to meet the requirements of an international academic journal. Wind energy technology is still developing rapidly and deployment is accelerating as wind becomes the main mechanism for achieving EU carbon emission reduction and renewable energy targets. EWEA conferences reflect the very latest developments and analyses and this ensures that the special issue is as up to date as any properly peer reviewed journal can be in this fast moving subject area.
