This webinar will introduce two of the more common methods for instituting compensatory mitigation: mitigation banks and in lieu fee programs. Speakers will provide backgrounds on how each of these mechanisms work and provide case studies under which these programs have been used to conserve wildlife affected by wind energy development.

This webinar is a part of the Compensatory Mitigation for Land-Based Wind Energy series co-hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Renewable Energy Wildlife Institute. This series is focused on the third step, compensatory mitigation, in the context of wind energy development. This four-part webinar series will introduce regulations that influence compensatory mitigation for wind energy projects and explore real-world examples of how compensatory mitigation is applied in practice.
