Renewable Energy and Biodiversity Impacts - IEEM 2012 Autumn Conference - in Cardiff 7th to 8th November
In the face of climate change and targets to reduce carbon emissions, renewable energy technologies are globally recognised as a critical part of the solution. However, the siting, design and operation of many renewable developments often bring significant conflict with biodiversity.
What you will learn?
1. Knowledge of the evolving policy context, economic constraints and incentives that apply to the renewable energy and how these influence decision making
2. Identification of key issues that renewable technologies raise for ecologists and environmental managers
3. How the latest research is filling gaps in our ecological knowledge
4. How renewable technology developments can apply best practice to protect and conserve the most ‘at risk’ habitats and species
Key speakers include Tony Juniper and Jane Davidson
