Using artificial intelligence and advanced cameras will help improve our understanding of how birds interact with photovoltaic arrays. As more solar energy systems are installed across the United States, scientists are quantifying the effects on wildlife. Current data collection methods are time-consuming, but the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has proposed a solution. The lab has been awarded $1.3 million from DOE’s Solar Energy Technologies Office […]techxplore.com
SNN Editor: What they fail to mention in this article is that there are massive numbers of birds dying over and around solar cell farms. This fact plus pressure from environmentalists are what’s driving the research in the first place.
