Wind turbine, biogas plant and a maize field

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…

Decarbonising heat and nature conservation: paths to a nature- and climate-compatible heating sector

The heating sector in Germany is to be decarbonised during the coming decades and is thus facing major changes: There is no longer any perspective for natural gas and heating oil, which are still the…

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…

Energy transition and nature conservation – EWeNat

Society's attitude to the energy transition is characterised by considerable contradictions which are not so easy to reconcile. Leading on from this, the research project looks at the contradictions…

Comic Man asks: What is the point of saving energy?

Innovation for overhead power lines

The energy transition requires expansion of the power grid, but there is a low acceptance of power masts. This project therefore aims to develop innovative systems for masts and cables in the 380 kV…
