Biodiversity

Preserving biodiversity

In total, we are to invest almost 8 million euros on adapting and correcting around 2,582 km of our electricity network in Cantabria, Castilla y León, Asturias and Galicia.

Alongside this, in the renewable energy area, a monitoring project has been developed that involves portable satellite radars to detect and monitor birds during the migratory periods of August and November. The data obtained has allowed for the scheduled stoppage and immediate stoppage of turbines to be established. By applying the latest technology in the detection of migratory flows of birds, Viesgo has been able to reduce the death rate of these animals to zero as they pass, for example, through Barao de Sao Joao wind farm in southern Portugal.

We also work closely with other institutions, such as SEO Birdlife, in matters such as the monitoring of bird behaviour and their protection. All these activities are closely related to compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals, more particularly number 15, Life on land.
