Abstract: 

Future wind power development faces many challenges. A firm knowledge base on impacts and mitigation is needed. This conference presents recent Swedish and international research and practice on environmental impacts of Wind Power.

 

Wind power development has become an important part of energy policies of many countries in the last decade. The world potential for wind power generation is huge. But wind power development may affect the physical environment; the landscape, soundscape, fauna and flora. There is a need for a firm knowledge-base on the impacts, as well as on innovative and efficient mitigation measures.

 

The conference is held by the Swedish research programme named Vindval. The programme aims at giving a scientifically founded, overall picture of the different environmental impacts of wind power. Much work is also in progress on these issues worldwide, and the Vindval programme now invites expertise and stakeholders from all over the world to share experiences on the environmental impacts of wind power, and to discuss how we should meet the challenges created by the world-wide increase in large scale wind power plant construction.
