SB2 (CR/2012/04) Strategic assessment of collision risk of offshore wind farms to migrating birds

The ‘Blue Seas – Green Energy: A Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore Wind Energy in Scottish territorial waters has identified the location of some of the best offshore wind energy resources in the country. However, they are also important areas for a wide range of bird species including those on migration. The aim of this project is to strategically assess, through modelling, the collision risk to migrating bird species arising from offshore wind farms in Scotland.

Delivery: July 2014
