Floating offshore wind farms in Mediterranean marine protected areas: a cautionary tale

Author:  LLoret, Josep; et al. | Spain

Abstract – As offshore wind energy expands in Europe, maritime planners increasingly need to consider the potential effects of these activities on the different types of marine protected areas (MPAs), including Natura 2000 sites. The aim of this article is to critically review the initial development of offshore wind energy inside and/or in the vicinity of Mediterranean Natura 2000 sites and other types of MPAs. The western Mediterranean Sea is taken as an example as this is where most of the . . .

High Bat Fatality Rates Estimated at Wind Farms in Southern Spain

Author:  Sánchez-Navarro, Sonia; Gálvez-Ruiz, David; Rydell, Jens; and Ibáñez, Carlos | Spain, Wildlife

Abstract – An astonishing number of bat fatalities (2,371 belonging to 15 species) were recovered in a provincial surveillance program at wind farms in Cádiz, at the southern tip of Spain, in 2005–2016. We carefully analysed a subset of this sample intending to estimate the true fatality rate in the year 2011, the year for which we had the richest data set (582 fatalities at 38 wind farms). To estimate the true fatality rate, we conducted search-efficiency and scavenger-removal trials in . . .

Griffon vulture mortality at wind farms in southern Spain: Distribution of fatalities and active mitigation measures

Author:  de Lucas, Manuela; et al. | Spain, Wildlife

Abstract: Wind is increasingly being used as a renewable energy source around the world. Avian mortality is one of the negative impacts of wind energy and a new technique that reduces avian collision rates is necessary. Using the most frequently-killed species, the griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus), we studied its mortality at 13 wind farms in Tarifa, Cadiz, Spain, before (2006–2007) and after (2008–2009) when selective turbine stopping programs were implemented as a mitigation measure. Ten wind farms (total of 244 . . .
