This report discusses the types of Endangered Species Act compliance needs that electric utilities commonly face and provides guidance to help utility environmental managers comply more efficiently and effectively.
Multispecies conservation at landscape or ecosystem scale recognizes the fundamental ecological fact that species do not exist in isolation and can potentially reduce the need for future listings under the Endangered Species Act. This report examines the strengths and weakness of multispecies management of endangered species.
Avian Species and the Electric Power Sector: Potential Research and Technology Gaps Related to Proposed Migratory Bird Treaty Act Permitting
This technical brief summarizes proposed permitting under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act; identifies research gaps related to transmission, distribution, and wind energy construction and operations; and summarizes resources to help the electric power industry identify cost-effective mitigation and compliance with the Act.
This technical brief describes issues related to potential conflicts between electric power operations and endangered and protected species, such as power line electrocutions, collisions with wind turbines, avian deaths from solar power technologies, habitat alteration from hydroelectric dams, and construction of infrastructure.
