Indirect positive contributions from renewable energies to nature conservation InPositive

Renewable energies contribute to climate protection and thus to the preservation of ecosystems by saving fossil fuels. In addition, their use has direct and indirect consequences on ecosystems and ecosystem services in the region that go beyond the saving of climate-affecting gases.
These indirect contributions of renewable energies to nature conservation objectives will remain hidden until they are communicated on the basis of concrete examples. The aim of the project is to investigate, group and communicate indirect and direct effects on renewable energies for nature conservation concerns in an exemplary manner for groups of people for whom nature conservation concerns are particularly relevant (e.g. nature conservation activists) as well as generally interested parties. In addition, a communication strategy to convey net-positive examples is to be developed in order to promote acceptance for nature-friendly expansion of renewable energies.
