We know that the curtailment of wind turbines is an effective way to reduce the risk of (fatal) collisions. However, this is less beneficial for the generation of energy.

Deterrence, on the other hand, could be effective for both bats and the energy production of the wind farm. After all, the turbines will have to stand still less. We will apply deterrence measures at a test site on land and monitor the casualties with and without a deterrence system. This will help us to determine whether this is an effective, alternative way to reduce the risk of (fatal) collisions. We are testing this on land because this allows for good casualty research, so we can better assess whether this innovation would also be suitable for future offshore wind farms.
