Abundant offshore wind resources off the coast of the United States have spurred interest in developing a domestic industry which has the potential to generate a significant portion of the nation’s electricity. In order to ensure the responsible growth of this industry, a number of different agencies and a wide range of researchers are working to assess the potential environmental impacts of offshore wind energy development.
This webinar will present the initial results of the first year of data collection for two large-scale DOE funded studies that establish baseline data to aid in the siting and permitting of future offshore wind projects:
• “The Mid-Atlantic Baseline Studies Project: Understanding Wildlife Densities and Movements on the Mid-Atlantic Continental Shelf” (Kate Williams, Biodiversity Research Institute)
• “Offshore Bat Research Activities in the New England, Mid-Atlantic Coastal States, and Great Lakes Regions” (Steve Pelletier, Stantec Consulting Services, Inc.)
This session will benefit energy managers and other professionals interested in reducing environmental risk and permit facilitation within the offshore wind market.
