AUTHORS: Becca Madsen, Electric Power Research Institute

ABSTRACT: The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) is a non-profit research institute that conducts research related to issues facing the electric power industry. In 2016, the organization launched a new research area related to Endangered and Protected Species. The major themes of research relate to conservation planning, species listing and delisting, and critical habitat. Additionally, EPRI supports collaboration among federal and state agencies, utilities, and other commercial and non-profit organizations in the area of endangered and protected species. Some research already conducted included developing a methodology for prioritizing research and conservation efforts for at-risk species, analyzing ecological assets of corporate surplus lands, synthesizing information on voluntary conservation tools, and reviewing policy and approaches for defining critical habitat. This presentation will help participants understand industry perspective, challenges, and opportunities related to research of at-risk species issues.
