Striking the right balance between wind energy and biodiversity

Main menu


Researchers of the  Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL and EPFL have developed a simulator that can calculate the performance of wind farms over 30 years while also factoring in the need to preserve local biodiversity. Tested at a site in the Carpathian Mountains in Romania, the simulator could be applied to the Swiss Jura region, which has a similar landscape.
