Webinar: Research Programs to Understand the Environmental Impacts of Offshore Wind, Part 2
Jun 20 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Research Programs to Understand the Environmental Impacts of Offshore Wind, Part 2 – Vattenfall’s Environmental Research Programme at the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) and the Dutch Offshore Wind Ecological Programme (Wozep)

Please join our webinar scheduled for Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 15:00-16:30 UTC (8:00 am PT/11:00 am ET) developed as part of International Energy Agency’s Wind Task 34 (also known as WREN – Working Together to Resolve Environmental Effects of Wind Energy). This webinar series supports WREN’s goal to facilitate international collaboration that advances global understanding of environmental effects of offshore and land-based wind energy development. Please feel free to forward this invite to others.

This webinar is the second of a two-part series covering research programs designed to understand the environmental impacts of offshore wind. Part 1, held in March 2017 and presented by Dr. John King from the University of Rhode Island (RI), included information on The United States Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM) Real-time Opportunity for Development Environmental Observations (RODEO) study at the U.S.’s first offshore wind farm at Block Island, RI. See http://tethys.pnnl.gov for access to the RODEO webinar.

Part 2, scheduled for June 20, 2017, will include a presentation by Jesper Kyed Larsen who will present on Vattenfall’s environmental research programme at the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), which includes in-depth scientific research to inform impact assessment for offshore wind. This will be followed by Ingeborg van Splunder who will present on the Dutch Offshore Wind Ecological Programme (Wozep), which is part of an adaptive management process surrounding the legislative process for offshore wind in the Netherlands

Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife Impacts @ Estoril Congress Centre
Sep 6 – Sep 8 all-day

The 4th Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife impacts (CWW 2017) will be held in Estoril, Portugal on 6 – 8 September, 2017.

Despite significant advances in recent years in our understanding of the impacts of wind energy on wildlife, challenges remain regarding planning and policy, assessment of direct and indirect effects on wildlife, methodological approaches, technology development, and mitigation strategies and their effectiveness. The CWW 2017 aims to maintain and promote the international cooperation among researchers, developers, regulators and stakeholders that over the years have contributed to building knowledge on this topic.

Based on the success of previous conferences, organizers expect to reach over 300 participants representing private and public companies, universities, professional groups and governmental agencies worldwide. The conference venue will include ample space for technical sessions as well as an exhibition area where developers, technology suppliers and other members of the industry can present their services and products.
