2012 Wind Wildlife Research Meeting Presents Latest Findings, Takes Stock of Progress in Understanding and Addressing Potential Wind Energy Impacts
The nation’s leading scientists on wind energy and wildlife convened on November 27-30 in Denver, Colorado, for the ninth biennial Wind Wildlife Research Meeting to share their latest findings and evaluate progress in understanding and addressing wind energy’s potential impacts on wildlife and wildlife habitat. The meeting was pivotal in several respects: in the sheer volume and scope of the research presented; in our ability, for the first time, to provide meta-analysis on a number of different topics and enlighten
We are delighted to announce that the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has completed its solicitation for facilitation of the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative (NWCC) and that it has selected the American Wind Wildlife Institute (AWWI) to facilitate the NWCC over the next five years. The contract (effective February 1, 2012) focuses on the NWCC’s Wildlife Workgroup, since the other workgroups are now dormant.
Under this new NREL contract to facilitate the NWCC, we
On October 19-21, 2010, NWCC hosted its eighth Wind Wildlife Research Meeting in Lakewood, Colorado.
