AWWI works with collaborators to facilitate, support, and compile resources on wind energy and wildlife.
NWCC Wind Wildlife Research Meeting
The biennial NWCC Wind Wildlife Research Meeting, organized by AWWI, is an internationally recognized forum featuring papers, posters, and panels on the latest wind-wildlife research.
Academics, researchers, conservation scientists, consultants, federal and state officials, NGO representatives, and wind industry professionals come together every other year for this unique opportunity.
The virtual 13th NWCC Wind Wildlife Research Meeting took place December 1-4, 2020.
Wind-Wildlife Documents Library
AWWI’s Wind-Wildlife Documents Library is a searchable database of publicly available literature and reports related to wind energy and wildlife in North America.
National Wind Coordinating Collaborative (NWCC)
The NWCC, facilitated by AWWI, is a forum for outreach and collaboration on understanding interactions and solving challenges for wind energy and wildlife.
Initiated in 1994 and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the NWCC catalyzes information exchange among wind-wildlife stakeholders and shares wind-wildlife news, research, and results through email newsletters, webinars, and the NWCC website.
The NWCC is retiring at the end of January 2021. NWCC resources will be moving to awwi.org. Explore at the links below.
Wind Energy Siting Resources
Learn about resources for conducting preliminary wind-site assessments (Tier 1 of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Wind Energy Guidelines). These tools and resources help wind developers identify potential risks to wildlife and habitats early in the process.
