Bats and wind energy - significance threshold, tower microphone

The "significance threshold" in many regional guidelines (Länderleitfaden) specifies how many dead bats per wind turbine (WT) and year are tolerable. So far, the threshold has been based in most…

Bird populations and the energy transition

The project investigates changes in the breeding populations of bird species, especially those which are considered as conservation indicators of species diversity and landscape quality. In…

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…

Floating PV – An investigation concept for the nature conservation impacts

PV systems on artificial and heavily modified water bodies also serve to implement the EEG (§ 36 WHG). The first systems have gone into operation on artificial stillwaters, although the nature…
