The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the European Commission (EC), under the Joint Technical Platform for Cooperation on the Environment, are organising a conference to promote better and more effective implementation of the EU Birds and Habitats Directives (Nature Directives) in relation to the developments of the renewable energy sector.

Discussions will focus on the two guidance documents recently issued by the EC, ‘The requirements for hydropower in relation to EU nature legislation’ and ‘Energy transmission infrastructure and EU nature legislation’. Relevant elements from the 2011 guidance document ‘Wind energy developments and Natura 2000’, currently being updated, will also be presented.
