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

REWI Research Hub

The REWI Research Hub is a one-of-a-kind information-sharing center. Interactive and evolving, the Hub pools information from credible sources across the global research community. By making sound science accessible and consolidated, the Hub empowers energy and conservation/science stakeholders to make data-informed decisions, streamlining paths forward toward renewable energy and conservation goals.

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 14th Wind Wildlife Research Meeting occurred November 14-17, 2022.

 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.
