The Energy Department is inviting input from the public regarding a potential funding opportunity to

  1. refine and improve wind turbine operational strategies for reducing impacts to bats and
  2. validate tools for compensatory mitigation to help ensure that impacts to eagles at wind farms are offset by reductions in impacts outside of wind farms.

The deadline for responses is 12:00pm EDT on October 11, 2016.
