Through our Partners and Friends and the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative, AWWI provides a forum to share wind-wildlife solutions and ensure that information empowers action that leads to sustainable results.
AWWI attends wind industry and wildlife conservation events, presents our work and results to stakeholders, and collaborates with state and federal agencies to ensure that our work will be informative and implementable in the context of current and future policy.
The National Wind Coordinating Collaborative (NWCC) is a consensus-based collaborative formed in 1994 to address sustainable development of wind power. AWWI facilitates and co-funds the NWCC, with a mission to identify, define, discuss, and through broad stakeholder involvement and collaboration address wind-wildlife and wind-habitat interaction issues to promote the shared objective of developing commercial markets for wind power in the United States. The NWCC is co-funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind and Water Technologies Program through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
The primary activities of the NWCC include:
