Avian Sensitivity Tool for Energy Planning (AVISTEP)

by BirdLife International


AVISTEP as an upstream sensitivity mapping tool focusing on birds which provides a low cost solution to speeding up delivery of renewable energy projects. AVISTEP quickly allows developers and governments to identify sites of high wind and solar resources but with low environmental sensitivity ideal for renewables development, as well as sites of high sensitivity that should be avoided. The result of using such a tool will mean projects can be developed more quickly, gain regulatory approval and have easier access to lender finance. Equipped with information obtained from this tool, those involved in planning renewable energy will be able to ensure that facilities are developed in the most appropriate locations.
