Bat populations across the globe are in decline, making bat conservation a critical issue for the wind industry. While it is well researched that wind turbines cause mortality to bats, successful minimization methods have been implemented. Historically, the most effective techniques involve curtailment, which requires a reduction in energy generation. NRG Systems understands that this is not an ideal option for wind plant operators or for winning the fight against climate change. That’s why we have set out to develop Bat Deterrent Systems that could significantly reduce bat take without curtailment, meaning operators can produce more renewable energy more of the time while keeping bats out of harm’s way. Early trials of NRG's Bat Deterrent Systems have yielded positive results, and we are currently field testing Systems with a variety of wind plant operators.
Our Bat Deterrent Systems are commercially available in North America. Please contact us for more information.
Applications Beyond Wind
NRG’s Bat Deterrent Systems keep bats out of unsafe airspaces. That means this technology has the potential to help myriad industries participate in bat conservation. Visit nrgsavesbats.com to learn more about non-wind applications for our Bat Deterrent Systems.
