Applying novel approaches for renewable energy and wildlife through innovative programs.

REWI’s work is built on innovation, collaboration, and sound science. Through REWI’s unique collaborative structure, we engage with diverse experts to develop innovative approaches and independent results. These results make it possible to understand risk and develop effective solutions for renewable energy expansion and wildlife conservation.

Our Approach


Study: Assessing Risk

REWI provides new insights for understanding renewable energy’s risks to wildlife through tools including new risk models and the American Wind Wildlife Information Center (AWWIC) post-construction fatality database. By using big data, these tools are reducing uncertainty and informing decision-making to help improve conservation.


Solve: Developing Solutions

REWI ‘s work advances cost-effective, scientifically-accepted solutions for renewable energy and wildlife. Cutting-edge technologies are making it possible to minimize impacts, and collaborative research identifies and addresses priorities through the development of best management practices.


Act: Enabling Application

Through synthesis and outreach on results, REWI works with collaborators to ensure solutions are used to achieve conservation outcomes.
