REWI Webinar: The Future of Wind Energy Technology and Wildlife Considerations
January 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST
Technology and Innovation in Wind and Wildlife – The Future of Wind Energy Technology and Wildlife Considerations
January 26, 2023
2:00PM-3:00PM CST, through Zoom
This webinar focuses on the state and direction of land-based wind turbine technology and its implications for wildlife. As wind turbines grow in size, including taller hub heights and longer blades, and become more efficient at relatively low wind speed conditions, the types of wildlife impacted and the nature of those impacts may change. Changing turbine technology will also likely change how we monitor and minimize wind energy and wildlife interactions.
