Z. V. Selyunina

Wind power generation - an alternative form of energy. With all the advantages of this type of energy, it also has some negative aspects of environmentally among which noise pollution and direct threat aerofaune: birds, bats, insects. Important task - to rationally to relate advantages and risks of using this type of energy. Northwestern Black Sea region - perspective area for the use of wind energy. Modern hiroptofauna this region has 12 species of bats. Of them are common - 8 species. Of them - 2-3 resident species, other species are found during seasonal migrations. On the coast, where it is expedient to place wind power bat migration is poorly expressed. Settlers Transient species are tied mainly to anthropogenic habitats. Observations existing wind power plants in the region cases of death bats are not installed. Establishment of science-based seasonal and diurnal mode WPP can practically exclude cases of death of animals.
