  • Improving Renewable Siting

    A dramatic expansion of renewable sources of electricity—such as wind, solar and hydropower—is required to meet goals for delivering climate-safe and abundant electricity. This transition must happen in a way that does not negatively impact communities or landscapes, such as the widespread loss of healthy rivers and floodplains to hydropower dams or the conversion or degradation of important terrestrial and marine habitats to wind and solar expansion and transmission lines. WWF scientists, with partners, are researching pathways to expand renewable energy through policies and practices that meet urgent climate goals while minimizing negative impacts to social and environmental resources.
