Within the workshop the objectives and the implementation progress of the project were presented. The participants were informed on the guidelines of the European and Greek legislation on the siting of wind farms within the network Natura 2000, and on the early warning systems and risk reduction impact of fly fauna in wind farms. The participants also informed on the assessment of the impact on the energy production of a wind farm from the operation of early warning systems.
Finally, a demonstration of various sub-systems (ornithological radar system, automated optical systems, thermal remote sensing, monitoring bats) for the monitoring and protection of fly fauna in wind farms were performed and the participants had the opportunity to understand their operation. ╔n the meeting the representatives of the projectós Advisory Committee from the PUBLIC POWER CORPORATION RENEWABLES S.A., TERNA S.A., WWF, HELLENIC WIND ENERGY ASSOCIATION (HWEA), C.
