Update from the Canadian wind market


New Wind Energy and Bat Conservation Review


CanWEA has developed a Wind Energy and Bat Conservation Review (Review) to provide the wind industry, policy makers, and other stakeholders with a scientific and ecological approach to supporting renewable energy production while minimizing the potential for impact to bats. The Review objectively summarizes the body of scientific and practical knowledge gained over the last several decades regarding wind energy and bats. By consulting the Review, it is anticipated that the wind industry and other stakeholders will be better positioned to make decisions using sustainable, science-based approaches to wind turbine siting and bat impact mitigation measures.
