The development of renewable energy sources is key in combating global climate change. Nevertheless renewable energy developments – such as wind farms, tidal power schemes and solar farms – may themselves potentially impact wildlife. Working with government and industry stakeholders, our work aims to improve the evidence-base on these impacts, to inform spatial planning, assessment and monitoring. Our research has focussed on:

  • Understanding interactions between species and developments
  • Improving impact assessment methodologies
  • Determining population-level impacts
