Spanish Migres Foundation hosts the meeting for the Energy Agency working group about fauna and energy

The International Energy Agency (IEA) working group dedicated to winged fauna and renewable energies is meeting for the first time in Spain, and the meeting will take place between the 6th and the 8th of this month in the International Bird Migration Center (CIMA) that is managed by Fundación Migres in Tarifa. This appointment is arranged every six months and includes researchers, consultants and ministries of several countries, lidered by UUEE. Its final task is to asses the IEA, entity created by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) after the petrol crisis, which is looking after coordinating the energetic politics of its member states, with the finality to assure clean, safe and affordable energy to its inhabitants.

The working group analyses information on the impact of winged fauna in the wind energy, generating documents made publicly available to the internet. This meeting will recover what was done on the last semester. They will celebrate two work sessions, and one on field work, given that Tarifa is one of the most ideal scenarios to do so: it’s the most important entry point for birds in Europe, and the development of an wind powered energy since decades ago.
