A Groundbreaking Collaboration
We are a partnership of leaders in the wind industry, wildlife management agencies, and science and conservation organizations who collaborate on a shared mission:
To facilitate timely and responsible development of wind energy while protecting wildlife and wildlife habitat.
Enabling Sustainable Results
AWWI uses novel approaches to assess risk and reduce uncertainty. This informs permitting, siting, and operation to advance wind energy and improve conservation.
Technology makes it possible to minimize impacts to birds and bats. Collaborative research identifies priorities and informs best practices to avoid, minimize, and offset impacts.
Through outreach and collaboration, AWWI shares the latest research and helps partners implement wind-wildlife solutions.
AWWI presents the inaugural Solar Symposium, December 1-3, 2021. The virtual Symposium will convene experts and stakeholders from across sectors to review the state of the science for solar power and wildlife/natural resource and identify research gaps and priority questions.
We are seeking experienced candidates for a Project Manager and a Solar/Wind Energy Wildlife Scientist to join AWWI’s dynamic team. Both positions will support AWWI’s work in developing science, tools, and strategies for renewable energy siting and operations that minimize impacts to wildlife and wildlife habitat.
A proof-of-concept study supported by the Wind Wildlife Research Fund explored the development of decision support tools that could inform targeted, proactive curtailment using regional-scale variables to predict increases in bat presence and collision risk.
Every other year, AWWI reports on our progress and shares accomplishments and milestones. These successes are possible thanks to our dedicated supporters. View our 2019-2020 Progress Report for highlights and milestones from the past two years.
