🔋I hope the year 2023 has started in a satisfying way for you and you all had the opportunity to recharge. As climate change didn’t have a Christmas break, I would like to start this year with a post pointing the finger at an old but unfortunately still viable study from 2017.
🐝We all remember the “Krefeld study” on the loss of insects, which showed us how drastically the population of insects has declined in Germany. The results showed a seasonal decline of 76%, and a mid-summer decline of 82% in flying insect biomass over the 27 years of study. Some of us may have realised the decline of insects as the windshields of our cars have been a lot cleaner during recent summers.
❗These dramatic changes and the missing insects have shown us how important it is to restore our biodiversity. Solar parks can make here a great contribution as they are a form of shelter for birds, small animals and insects. Therefore, let’s work together by developing a decentralized renewable power generation, which is built to restore our flora and fauna.
💭Do you have other ideas on how photovoltaic assets can go the extra-mile to protect and help nature to heal? Please let me know in the comments!
