Wind power and biodiversity seminar

The next European seminar dealing with Wind power and biodiversity will take place on 21st and 22nd November 2017 at the Campus Atlantica, in Artigues-près-Bordeaux (France).

20 years after the setting up of the first wind turbines in France, the wind energy sector is at a key turning point of its development. Behind it, the oldest wind farms reach the end of their useful lives and raise questions about dismantling and repowering.

In front of it : the first offshore wind farms are about to emerge from the water and the law on the energy transition shows the ambitious objective of doubling the number of onshore wind turbines by 2023, in a context which reinforce measures to protect the natural heritage in France - with the publication of the Law for the Recovery of Biodiversity in 2016 - and in Europe with the development of an action plan for better implementation of the Birds Directives and Habitats announced by the European Commission.

During these two days, devoted respectively to the terrestrial and marine environments, the European Wind power and Biodiversity Seminar will provide an opportunity to show the state of knowledge on the real impacts of wind farms, how to measure and mitigate them.
