With the Mayor of London's office decision to allow planning permission only if 10% of the building's energy consumption is from renewable sources, wind turbines are starting to be erected on rooftops of residential blocks. A Proven 6 kW, 6m horizontal axis turbine was positioned on an 11 story 1960s concrete construction block of flats in the summer of 2007. Noise and vibration measurements were taken on the roof-top and in the nearest flat. In addition, energy performance was monitored, wind speed and direction recorded and weather noted. Results confirm that central London is a 24 h city and, given the right conditions, the turbine generators meaningful amounts of electricity.
