AWWI is announcing a Request for Information (RFI) regarding available and in-development technologies intended to detect and deter birds and/or bats in the vicinity of wind turbines. The purpose of this RFI is to gather information about detection and deterrence technologies; specifically the state of research and product development around the detection and deterrence of birds and bats with the goal of reducing wind turbine collision fatalities and minimizing effects on project operation.
The full RFI (including instructions for submission) can be downloaded in PDF format by clicking here.
