The United States Fish and Wildlife Service recently issued its final voluntary guidelines for onshore wind developers. These guidelines were the product of a five-year federal advisory committee process consisting of federal agencies, developers, conservation organizations, academia, and state and tribal representatives. The guidelines are intended to help developers and the Service analyze risks from wind energy development and operations to wildlife and wildlife habitat. This interactive workshop will provide an overview of the recently published final FWS Onshore Wind Guidelines, discuss questions regarding implementation intent and expectations from various stakeholder perspectives, and explore issues and opportunities for additional clarification.
Speakers will include David J. Hayes, Deputy Secretary of the Interior, and David Cottingham, Senior Advisor to the Director of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Please click here for a downloadable copy of the full Agenda.
