Wind Energy and Wildlife Interactions

Presentations from the CWW2015 Conference

Editors: Köppel, Johann (Ed.)

  • Assessment of interactions and impacts of birds and bats with wind turbines, such as for the strongly protected red kite and multispecies assessment of avian mortality rates
  • New insights in understanding and mitigating impacts on wildlife and their habitats (e.g. curtailment algorithm for bats, shutdown on demand for birds)
  • Review of current research of location and spatial design of wind turbines

About this book

This book presents a selection of new insights in understanding and mitigating impacts on wildlife and their habitats.  Topics such as, species behaviour and responses; collision risk and fatality estimation;  landscape features and gradients, are considered.

Other chapters in the book  cover the results of current research on mitigation; compensation; effectiveness of measures;  monitoring and long-term effects;  planning  and siting.
Examples are given of current research on shutdown on demand and curtailment algorithms.
By identifying what we have learned so far, and which predominate uncertainties and gaps remain for future research, this book  contributes to the most up to date knowledge on research and management options.

This book includes presentations from the Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife impacts (CWW15), March 2015, hosted by the Berlin Institute of Technology, which offered a platform to national and international participants to showcase the current state of knowledge in wind energy’s wildlife implications. 

About the authors

Johann Köppel is a full professor at the Berlin Institute of Technology (Germany) and head of the Environmental Assessment and Planning (Research Group) (www.umweltpruefung.tu-berlin.de). He specializes in impact assessments, and has been involved in the sustainable development of wind energy since more than a decade. He served in CWW’s scientific committees since 2011 and hosted the CWW2015 conference in Berlin. Current relevant research focuses on a horizon scan as far as ‘emerging issues’ for future research and applications are concerned. Contact: johann.koeppel@tu-berlin.de






Reviews

“This book covers 16 research papers in 7 sections over 289 pages, matching the main themes of the conference, and providing a global focus that is warmly welcomed. … the reader will not be disappointed by the diversity and breadth of issues covered, and the Editor and contributing authors should be congratulated on a significant advancement to our understanding of the impacts of wind farms on wildlife.” (Chris B. Thaxter, Bird Study, 2017)
