AWWI works with collaborators to facilitate, support, and compile resources on wind energy and wildlife.

Wind Wildlife Research Meeting

The biennial 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.

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.

National Wind Coordinating Collaborative (NWCC)


The NWCC was initiated in 1994 and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and served as a forum for outreach and collaboration on understanding interactions and solving challenges for wind energy and wildlife. The NWCC retired in early 2021. Explore NWCC resources:
