Wind Beneath Your Wings

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


Advances in wind turbine technology and the need for renewable energy resources drive the rapid expansion of the wind industry in the Unites States and abroad. In 2019, wind energy overtook hydropower as the most-used source of renewable energy generation in the country, producing 300 million megawatt-hours of electricity or roughly 6% of the nation's total power output. Continuing this rapid expansion while also protecting wildlife requires more efficient and cost-effective wind-energy-wildlife impact monitoring and minimization technologies. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL's) wind energy program offers unparalleled expertise in environmental science and wildlife impact mitigation, helping project partners develop and validate their ideas.
