Eurobats guidelines for consideration of bats in wind farm projects  

Author:  | Europe, Regulations, Wildlife

Content sections include “General aspects of the planning process”, Carrying out impact assessments”, “Monitoring the impacts”, and “Research priorities”. Two tables outline the results of studies done in Europe and bats’ behavior in relation to wind facilities.

Wind turbines “can have negative impacts on bat populations as well as on their prey and habitats, such as:
• Damage, disturbance or destruction of foraging habitats and commuting corridors;
• Damage, disturbance or destruction of roosts;
• Increased collision risk for bats in flight;
• Disorientation of bats in flight through emission of ultrasound noise.”
