Wind Energy and Wildlife Interactions : Presentations from the Cww2015 Conference (Hardcover)
about this item
In March 2015, the Berlin Institute of Technology hosted the Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife impacts (CWW15), offering a platform to national and international participants to showcase the current state of knowledge in wind energy’s wildlife implications. This book presents a selection of new insights in understanding and mitigating impacts on wildlife and their habitats. Not only topics like ‘Species behavior & responses’, ‘Collision risk and fatality estimation’, ‘Landscape features & gradients’, but also results of current research on ‘Mitigation, compensation, effectiveness’, ‘Monitoring & long-term effects’, ‘Planning & Siting’ are covered. For example, current research on shutdown on demand and curtailment algorithms is among others one focal point. By identifying what we have learned so far and which predominate uncertainties and gaps remain for future research, this book aims at contributing and sharing knowledge on current research and management options.
