In this report, we have summarized existing knowledge about the effects of wind power on reindeer. The effects of technical installations and disturbance in general and the effects of wind power plants in particular have been studied by different research groups. Their efforts have improved our knowledge about the effects of such installations on reindeer and reindeer husbandry. In some cases, various projects reported contrasting results. We have tried to explain the results from the respective investigations.
