The 6th Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife impacts will take place from 4 – 8 April in Egmond aan Zee with physical attendance. This decision was made together with CWW’s Scientific Advisory Committee and based on this week’s decision by the Dutch government that from the end of February almost all national Covid-19 regulations will be lifted.
This 6th conference in the CWW series is taking place in Hotel Zuiderduin in the Dutch seaside town of Egmond aan Zee. The five days program will stress the importance of scientific knowledge for policy and wildlife management related to wind farms.
The Scientific Advisory Committee has selected 68 oral presentations and more than 70 poster presentations to be included in the scientific program. Each session will contain four oral presentations, organized in the seven themes of the conference, being: Planning issues, Species responses, Uncertainty in risk assessments, Cumulative (population) effects, Wind & wildlife interaction in practice, Mitigation hierarchy, and Outlook to the future- emerging challenges & opportunities.

There are also excursions planned. Ventolines will host a visit to Fryslân Wind Farm, the largest wind farm in the world in an inland water, and present the process of planning, permitting and construction. Port of Amsterdam and IJmuiden Seaport (AYOP) will present the developments of a brand-new energy port that will serve as a key base of operations for the construction and maintenance of the new to be constructed wind farms located off the coast of North Holland.
Already more than 300 registered participants have registered for the conference. An early bird fee is still applicable till 1 March.
