At present there is no clear guidance to best practice for the protection of wind turbines and manufacturers have adopted different policies. The main objective of this project was the production of a Guide to Best Practice in Protection of Wind Turbines against Lightning. By making this widely available to the European wind energy industry it is intended that lightning protection practice will improve and the effects of lightning strikes reduced. It is hoped that the information will be of a practical nature and that the guidance to the designers and operators of wind turbines will help them minimise the effects of lightning strikes in a cost effective way.
