Welcome to the project website "LIFE12 BIO/GR/000554- Demonstration of good practices to minimize impacts of wind farms on biodiversity in Greece".Here you will be informed about the project objectives, activities and results. Our website will be updated regularly to provide information to all interested parties about the project and issues relating to environmental protection and biodiversity conservation. The cooperation between the two organizations CRES and NCC, the organizations associated with Renewables and Nature conservation respectively, aims to harmonize the production of wind energy to the protection of biodiversity in a direction that would limit any negative aspects and maximize the benefits for both sides.
The program is implemented by CRES and the environmental consulting company NCC, with the contribution of EU's financial instrument LIFE+ .
The total budget of the project is 894.784 Euro. ďhe EC Contributions is 430.642,0 euros.
The operation of the two video surveillance systems of CRES continues in the two wind farms at Keratea Attikis and at Derveni in Thrace. In February 2019 a visit was implemented to the wind farm at Derveni to control the system. Both systems operate without problems. ┴dditionally, the recordings with two bats detectors on V47/660kW wind turbine at CRES wind farm continue.
Participation of CRES in the 3rd International Exhibition "verde.tec" for environmental technologies, "smart cities" and cycling economy. CRES participated in the exhibition with the organization of a workshop and with a stand in which the visitor could be informed about CRES projects. The Minister of Environment and Energy, Mr. Stathakis, opened the workshop of CRES. Also, the former Minister of Environment and Energy, Mr. Maniatis, addressed a greeting.
