Wind Energy and Wildlife. We need both for a healthy, sustainable
AWWI is the driving force behind the innovative solutions
and problem-solving we need to remove wind wildlife issues as a barrier to
America must increase use of renewables as
soon as possible to address the onset of global warming. Land-based wind
energy is essential to achieving this goal. Wind energy represents
the greatest opportunity to expand new, domestically-generated, renewable
energy over the next 20 years. However, widespread deployment of
domestic, onshore wind energy cannot happen overnight. A key
obstacle is the legitimate concern about impacts to wildlife and their
habitats in the siting and operation of wind farms. We must meet these
concerns head on – today – if we are to meet the reality of climate
Benefits of wind power:
- U.S. wind resources are sufficient to meet as much as 20% of
nation's demand for electricity by 2030.*
- Wind is among the cleanest of all electricity producing
technologies. It uses no water and produces no carbon emissions
in energy generation.
- A 25% reduction in CO2 emissions can be achieved by the nation’s
electric sector if we scale wind energy to the 20% by 2030 level.*
When you invest in AWWI, you support:
- Innovation and Systemic Change – AWWI projects,
including applied research, lead to technological and systemic
innovation both in the market place and the policy arena.
- Education – AWWI informs and educates key
decision-makers to improve policy (development and implementation),
siting and operations of wind energy, and understanding of real and
- New Tools - AWWI tools and management strategies
are designed to reduce risk to wildlife, increase certainty around
impacts and remove barriers such that wind energy can succeed
As a result of these efforts, AWWI delivers the following: 1) wind
companies spend less time caught up in regulation and more time delivering
wind energy to the market and 2) conservation stakeholders are protecting
precious wildlife resources while also blazing a path forward on renewable
With your support we can make wind energy our go-to clean energy source
and aggressively challenge the onset of climate change.

We also invite you to get to know more about our partner organizations.
AWWI coordinates the wind wildlife efforts of our non-profit partners to
develop comprehensive, proactive solutions that will advance wind and
minimize impact on wildlife/habitat. We applaud these organizations
for their leadership – we hope you will also.
