Eider ducks fly in V formation over the open sea, with offshore wind turbines in the near background

Birds and wind energy use

Appropriately addressing the requirements of nature conservation at all planning levels is of great importance for any renewable energy expansion project. To this end, the project analyses selected…

Wind turbine in agrarian landscape

Effectiveness of bird flight diverters

Bird flight diverters are used throughout the world to reduce collisions by birds at overhead power lines and the additional mortality associated with this. Their effectiveness is determined by…

A red kite flies in front of an overhead electricity line

Effectiveness of control measures for the red kite

The project aims to optimise the planning and approval process for wind turbines and to minimise the risk to bird species sensitive to wind turbines. A field studies-based evaluation will be made of…

Red kites over a field

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…

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

Energy-efficiency refurbishment and species conservation

In order not to exacerbate the "housing shortage" for birds and bats during building refurbishment, environmental and species protection must be linked together and jointly promoted. This three-year…
