Welcome to NWCC
The National Wind Coordinating Collaborative (NWCC) provides a neutral forum for a wide range of stakeholders to pursue the shared objective of developing environmentally, economically, and politically sustainable commercial markets for wind power in the United States. Formed in 1994, this partnership of experts and interested parties identifies issues that affect the use of wind power. By establishing dialogue on key and current topics and catalyzing activities that build consensus among its stakeholders, the NWCC has successfully addressed critical challenges in the areas of transmission, wildlife and habitat impacts, siting, power markets, and other aspects of wind development.
The NWCC is now focused on the activities of its Wildlife Workgroup.
The Mission of the NWCC Wildlife Workgroup is to identify, define, discuss, and through broad stakeholder involvement and collaboration address wind-wildlife and wind-habitat interaction issues to promote the shared objective of developing commercial markets for wind power in the United States.
The NWCC is co-funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind and Water Technologies Program through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the American Wind Wildlife Institute, which facilitates the NWCC.
