The 10th Wind Wildlife Research Meeting was held December 3 – 5, 2014, in Broomfield, CO.
The biennial Wind Wildlife Research Meeting provides an internationally recognized forum for researchers and stakeholders to share and engage on the latest science focused on better understanding the risk of wind energy to wildlife and developing solutions to avoid, minimize, and offset impacts. The meeting also brings together thought leaders to discuss priority topics and themes in the wind-wildlife arena.

These proceedings document research, presented at the NWCC Wind Wildlife Research Meeting X, focused on technologies for detecting and deterring wildlife, assessing risk to eagles, and assessing mechanisms to avoid and minimize impacts on bats.
The Proceedings of the Wind Wildlife Research Meeting capture and summarize the work of nearly 100 presenters on a wide array of wind-wildlife topics being addressed by industry, policy-makers, conservation groups, and scientists. Major focus areas include technologies for detecting and deterring wildlife, assessing risk to eagles, and assessing mechanisms to avoid and minimize impacts on bats.
The new research reveals an emphasis on technology and innovation. This trend is one of several indications of how far research has come since the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative convened the first Wind Wildlife Research Meeting in 1994, and sets the state for wind-wildlife solutions in 2015 and beyond. The Proceedings mark 20 years of progress in wind/wildlife research.
