WEST’s ecologists and statisticians have learned how to take their extensive experience with wildlife issues in the renewable energy markets in the US and Canada and apply it to emerging renewable energy markets in Latin America and other regions. Couple this scientific expertise with one of the most extensive renewable energy databases on wind/wildlife issues of any private company in the US, and WEST is uniquely capable of providing a broad suite of environmental services for projects internationally.
WEST’s core services cover the life cycle of wind and solar energy projects and include site selection and characterization, design and analysis of appropriate wildlife studies, mitigation strategies, management plans, cumulative impacts analysis, and independent due diligence services for developers, international finance institutions, and governments. WEST has been active in Latin America since 2006 and has worked on over 50 projects in seven countries. The ability to deliver cost-effective solutions to our clients is a benchmark of the company that has been maintained in our international markets.
