REWI works with collaborators to facilitate, support, and compile resources on renewable energy and wildlife.

Wind-Wildlife Documents Library

REWI’s Wind-Wildlife Documents Library is a searchable database of publicly available literature and reports related to wind energy and wildlife in North America.

 Solar Resources Library

Crated for the Solar Power and Wildlife/Natural Resources Symposium, the Solar Resources Library features publications, resources, and links to relevant organizations to inform understanding on the state of the science on solar and wildlife/natural resources.

Solar Power and Wildlife/Natural Resources Symposium

The Solar Symposium convened experts and stakeholders from academia, industry, conservation, consultants, and public agencies to review the state of the science, and identify research gaps and priority questions.

Wind-Wildlife Guide

This Wind-Wildlife Guide summarizes the statutory and regulatory framework and context of wind energy and wildlife, the state-of-the-science on wind-wildlife interactions, and the strategies that are being implemented to avoid, minimize, and compensate for adverse impacts from onshore wind energy in the U.S. to wildlife and habitats.

Wind Wildlife Research Meeting

REWI hosts the biennial Wind Wildlife Research Meeting, 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 renewable 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.

 Siting Resources

Learn about resources for conducting preliminary site assessments. These tools and resources help 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. It served as a forum for outreach and collaboration on understanding interactions and solving challenges for wind energy and wildlife. The NWCC was retired in early 2021.
