At the Wild Energy Initiative Our Motto Is

Where energy, life, and the environment work together.

We are scientists working together to solve what we believe is the world’s greatest challenge today.


How will we meet our global goals for a rapid transition to renewable energy while maintaining the conservation of ecosystem services and species that humans depend on?


We work together conducting interdisciplinary energy research across the globe from mapping district heating smokestacks in Sweden to quantifying environmental opinions of landowners in high volume hydraulic fracturing units in Ohio to identifying the response of solitary bees to ground-mounted solar energy installations.

Our research…

is non-partisan and independent. Decision-makers, stakeholders, and our non-human allies without voices can rest assured that our science is motivated by professional integrity and objectivity. We are motivated by producing science and knowledge that is useful for society today and future generations tomorrow.
