Can Wind Energy Be Bird Safe?

Nearly every week, Kimberly Kaufman receives messages from birders and conservationists alerting her to new wind energy designs that bill themselves as safe for wildlife. The technologies come in all shapes and sizes and are in varying stages of development. Yet each claims to do one thing that conventional wind turbines can’t: harness the incredible power of wind without killing birds.

Kaufman, who is the Executive Director of Ohio’s Black Swamp Bird Observatory, spends a sizable portion of her waking hours trying to raise awareness of the perils that traditional wind turbines—towering monopoles with blades that churn the air up to 175 miles an hour—pose for birds. So she’s intrigued by the notion that entrepreneurs are dreaming up new ways to capture wind energy. And she appreciates that the Observatory’s supporters are paying attention.
But she’s also cautious. “If any of these designs are going to gain a foothold, we have to show that they are as efficient or at least close to the efficiency of the conventional design,” says Kaufman, who is also an ABC board member.
And the only way to know for sure if they’re safe for birds is to build them and test them out, which raises an uncomfortable question: “Where do you decide you’re going to experiment?”

آیا انرژی باد می تواند زیست سازگار باشد یا همواره بایستی در روند استحصال برق بادی، شاهد کشته شدن پرندگان بود؟
در حالی که تکاپو برای ممانعت از کشته شدن پرندگان توسط توربین های بادی معمول ادامه دارد، مخترعان و سازندگان، طرح های گوناگونی را ارائه داده، که این طرح ها به دلایلی همچون دلایل اقتصادی به مرحله اجرا در نیامده اند. در این بین، تکنولوژی اینولاکس به عنوان راهکاری برای رفع مسائل و مشکلات پیش روی صنعت باد، نه تنها مساله برخورد پرندگان با توربین را برای همیشه حل نموده بلکه انرژی برق بادی را با حداقل هزینه ممکن تولید و انرژی برق بادی را به رقیبی برای انرژی های فسیلی تبدیل کرده است.
