Note: This is the first webinar in a four-part series co-hosted by the Renewable Wildlife Energy Institute (REWI) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Click the above link to learn more.

The initial webinar will focus on the regulatory mechanisms that determine requirements for compensation. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) and Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (BGEPA) both require compensatory mitigation for individual species if adverse impacts occur at wind energy facilities. Experts will present U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and state-specific policies and regulations, including recent policy updates for compensatory mitigation under the ESA, that influence the implementation of compensation measures. Some examples of on-the-ground implementation will also be provided, including one for California Condor.
