Minimizing Collision Impacts for Bats at Operational Wind Facilities, Part 2: Deterrence (an AWWI webinar)
This is the second in a two-part webinar series hosted by AWWI and sponsored by NREL and the Department of Energy on technologies and strategies to minimize bat collision fatalities at operating wind energy facilities.

About the Event
Some bats are at risk of collision with operating wind turbines, but technologies and strategies can provide solutions for minimizing these impacts. Deterrence strategies, which aim to actively discourage bats from entering the high-risk rotor-swept zone using signals designed to help them perceive and avoid the risk or repel them from approaching the turbine, show promise for reducing bat collision fatalities.
This webinar will feature presentations, a panel discussion, and Q&A by experts on what we’re learning about different deterrence approaches, current research projects, and novel approaches to effective deterrence.
