Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife Impacts @ Estoril Congress Centre
Sep 6 @ 3:51 pm – Sep 8 @ 4:51 pm

The 4th Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife impacts (CWW 2017) will be held in Estoril, Portugal on 6 – 8 September, 2017.

Despite significant advances in recent years in our understanding of the impacts of wind energy on wildlife, challenges remain regarding planning and policy, assessment of direct and indirect effects on wildlife, methodological approaches, technology development, and mitigation strategies and their effectiveness. The CWW 2017 aims to maintain and promote the international cooperation among researchers, developers, regulators and stakeholders that over the years have contributed to building knowledge on this topic.

Based on the success of previous conferences, organizers expect to reach over 300 participants representing private and public companies, universities, professional groups and governmental agencies worldwide. The conference venue will include ample space for technical sessions as well as an exhibition area where developers, technology suppliers and other members of the industry can present their services and products.
