Success through unprecedented collaboration
AWWI was founded in 2008 by leaders from the wind industry and conservation and science organizations with the vision of achieving wind energy’s full conservation potential through sound science and collaboration. AWWI’s Founding Partners provided expertise and financial backing to build a new, independent organization to carry out this vision.
