This updated National Wind Wildlife Research Plan is a refresh of the 2017 document and includes an updated synthesis of REWI’s research priorities for 2020-2023 based on the state-of-the-science for wind-wildlife impacts and efforts to avoid, minimize, and compensate for those impacts. The Plan outlines specific topics where additional research investments are needed to avoid and minimize impacts to wildlife and keep pace with the scale of wind energy development needed over the next 10-20 years to mitigate climate change.

In 2017, AWWI published a National Wind Wildlife Research Plan to identify and prioritize key areas where additional, strategically targeted research investments are needed to advance: 1) Understanding of the nature and magnitude of the impacts of wind energy on wildlife and habitat; and 2) The development, evaluation, and widespread application of strategies to avoid, minimize, and compensate for those impacts when necessary to conserve healthy wildlife populations.
