Siting a wind energy facility is inherently challenging, and made even more complex by the need to weigh evolving regulatory requirements, cumulative effects on wildlife, and the potential impact of climate change on habitat availability.
This session explores both ongoing and emerging issues that must be addressed during the environmental siting of proposed projects, and offers innovative ideas for responding to changing expectations.
