The 5th Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife Impacts (CWW) is taking place in Stirling, Scotland 27 - 30 August, 2019.
The CWW is an event that tackles how to solve the environmental impacts of wind farms. The event also encourages researchers, developers, consultants, regulators and stakeholders that have experience of finding solutions to these environmental concerns to work together and share knowledge. This promotes a collaborative approach to resolving the key issues faced at wind farms.
The conference will look at the impacts on species, habitats and ecosystems; how to approach and come up with solutions for these impacts through mitigation, habitat restoration and risk reduction; and what the future challenges and opportunities are for these new and changing environments. The themes are:
Cumulative impacts and assessment
Population-level and ecosystem effects
Mitigation technologies and design
Wind and wildlife in practice
Floating wind: opportunities and constraints
Socio-ecological constraints and benefits
Future wildlife challenges to renewable energy
Repowering: opportunities and constraints
Ecological implications of novel technology
Developing countries/emerging markets
Forward view: renewable energy in a climate changed environment
