Environmental aspects of wind farms
When: Thursday, 23 June 2022, 14:00 - 15:30
In the context of a deepening and global environmental crisis, the world now faces the additional threat of a compounding energy crisis. Wind energy tops the EU’s list as the renewable energy technology that can deliver climate neutrality and energy independence in a quick and cost efficient way. And that will keep the clean energy transition truly ‘made in Europe’.
Wind is a clean, free, and sustainable source of renewable energy. Operating wind turbines does not emit greenhouse gases or any other air pollutant. But there are other potential impacts on society (noise, visual impact) and the surrounding natural environment (wildlife).
This session will highlight how the wind industry assesses and limits these impacts. It will present solutions to mitigate environmental impacts at all stages of wind energy development.
