Winding Up: Implementing New Wind Energy Siting Guidelines
The Guidelines will be most useful if Service staff, wind energy developers, wildlife consultants, state wildlife agencies, and environmental groups share a common understanding of what the Guidelines require, and how they are to be implemented. To this end, the Service is planning a series of Guidelines training courses, preliminarily scheduled for September 2012.
Recently, the Environmental Law Institute, Defenders of Wildlife, and Hogan Lovells jointly sponsored an interactive workshop, which brought together senior Service officials with representatives from developers, conservation organizations, consultants, and states to discuss the important issues on which the Service should provide training. Presentations from the Workshop, as well as a summary of the recommended training issues, are posted on the ELI Workshop website.
