The U.S. Department of Energy Wind Energy Technologies Office, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory convened a workshop entitled the State of the Science and Technology for Minimizing Impacts to Bats from Wind Energy on Nov. 13–14, 2019.
The objectives of the workshop were to:
- Identify the current impact minimization measures that are, or can be, used to reduce bat fatalities at wind energy facilities
- Assess the current effectiveness of those minimization measures
- Identify and assess the research and development opportunities needed to optimize and improve the effectiveness of current minimization and deterrent technologies and inform the development of future solutions
- Identify potential emerging or novel methods for informing impact minimization measures at or around wind energy facilities (NREL 2019)
The following is a list of papers and presentations produced by this event.
