AWWI worked with a diversity of experts to identify priority areas of research where we will focus from 2018 through 2020 to achieve key outcomes for wind energy development and wildlife conservation. These outcomes include:
- Improved understanding of risk for bald and golden eagles, bats, migratory birds, and prairie grouse
- The development of strategies for avoidance, minimization, and mitigation of adverse effects of wind development on these species
AWWI’s National Wind Wildlife Research Plan details these priorities, and highlights further work needed to ensure wind energy achieves its full conservation potential.
