Wind turbines refer to structures utilizing turbines, which are large rotating wheels, with the purpose of harvesting and converting wind into electrical power. Wind turbines expert witnesses might be experienced with areas of focus such as mechanical engineering, physics, and meteorology, as each of the fields take on a major role in the construction and utilization of wind turbine systems.
Meteorology may be a major factor in determining the outcome of a lawsuit related to the use of wind turbines, as meteorological forecasts may indicate the presence of wind to be used in wind turbines. Wind turbine expert witnesses are therefore often experienced with weather and climatology, storms, hydrology, geography, air pollution, and other issues related to weather and weather forecasting. Wind turbines may also be subjected to wind damage caused by windstorms, which may result in insurance claims and litigation if not properly guarded or repaired. As with any type of weather-based operation and machinery, a court case may also be related to environmental health and safety.
Wind turbine expert witnesses may also have a background in mechanical engineering, since the field is responsible for the design and manufacture of wind turbine systems. Like other types of construction projects based on mechanical designs, wind turbine expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion based on the cause of a mechanical failure or engineering defect.
