AviSite – Online application for assessing life cycle impacts on avian diversity for siting of onshore wind farms

AviSite has been developed as an online application that allows users to perform life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) screening of bird impacts during the early planning phase. It allows users to spatially visualise where impacts of avian diversity are expected to be highest and allow for locating sites with lowest conflict level per LCOE. The LCIA methodology has been developed, but the online application still needs to be constructed and validated. Currently the app is published internally for testing prior to public release. This innovation is currently at TRL 6.
