Research Partnerships

As the largest producer of wind energy in the United States, we are committed to better understanding bat and avian interactions with wind turbines to reduce or mitigate operational impacts to wildlife. As a result, we often partner with government agencies, education institutions and other industry representatives in research opportunities. Below are major wildlife initiatives we are currently participating in at the national level. We hold leadership positions in many of these collaborations, and in many cases, we have founded the cooperative effort, as well as provided major funding.
