Action: Automatically switch off wind turbines when bat activity is high

Key messages

  • We found no evidence for the effects of automatically switching off wind turbines when high levels of bat activity are detected.

'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
