Assessment of the impact of new generation wind turbines on birds and bats

The technical development in the wind power industry is constantly advancing with an increasing number of new turbine types. Therefore, the conflict potential for nature conservation must also be…

Bats and wind energy in woodland I

The project's objective is to collate and evaluate existing data to identify and limit the effects of WT on bats in woodland and to remedy any relevant gaps in knowledge by examining case studies.…

Bats and wind energy in woodland II

The object of this research project is to establish whether and to what extent wind turbines at forest sites have a negative effect on bats, disturb them or even threaten them to a significant…

Bat in flight

Bats and wind energy in woodland III

The continued environmentally compatible expansion of renewable energies is progressing. Sites in woodland, for example, are being increasingly developed for wind energy. There is still a need for…

Effectiveness of mitigation measures

There is a wide range of current measures used to minimise the adverse effects of wind turbines on birds. These include regulating the operation of the turbine, preventing birds being attracted to it…

EKNA – Environmental impacts of underground cables and options for an environmentally-compatible transmission route design

Underground cables as an alternative to overhead transmission lines are increasingly under discussion. The project examines the effects of different extra-high voltage underground cable systems on…

Federal sectoral planning: nature and environmental conservation for the expansion of the transmission grid

Despite the initial publications by the Federal Network Agency and transmission grid operators, in practice there are still unresolved questions about the methodology of federal sectoral planning in…

Monitoring the operation of WT in woodland – impacts on the avifauna

In the course of the energy transition, forests – habitats for woodpeckers, owls and other species of birds – are increasingly becoming sites for wind farms. Noises, movement or obscuration can have…

Preventative measures for underground cable projects

Laying high-voltage underground cables (for example HVDC – high-voltage direct current transmission) requires a range of prevention and mitigation measures. The research project develops practical…
