Grant Description

The USGS is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for research on assessment demographic affects to wildlife populations from renewable energy development. Electricity generation has environmental impacts. This is even the case for renewable forms of energy Дкк wind, solar, and geothermal. For example, wind and solar energy generation can both injure or kill large numbers of birds or bats and they can reduce habitat quantity and quality for these same species. Environmental costs such as these are a problem for ratepayers because they increase the challenges to permitting, developing and operating a renewable energy facility, which increases costs to ratepayers.
