SKARV is a bird collision avoidance system which uses cameras to detect approaching birds, and artificial intelligence to predict their trajectory. The wind turbine can then adjust the pitch of its blades to reduce its speed and prevent a collision. Read more about SKARV: How can control engineering save birds in wind farms?
ConSite Wind is a Spatial Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis toolbox (S-MCDA) that is useful to build consensus, optimise spatial planning and improve transparent decision-making processes during the planning and licensing phase of wind energy projects. ConSite is designed to perform a combination of modern multi-criteria evaluation and decision analysis techniques for optimal siting of wind-power plants […]
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 […]
