WILDLIFE AND OFFSHORE WIND (WOW)

A Systems Approach to Research and Risk Assessment for Offshore Wind Development from Maine to the Carolinas

Wildlife and Offshore Wind (WOW) is a trans-disciplinary, highly integrated collaboration of diverse experts for the comprehensive evaluation of the potential effects of offshore wind energy development on marine wildlife. Our goal is to provide a long-term, adaptive roadmap for efficient and effective assessment of the potential effects of offshore wind energy development on marine life, from siting through operation.

The two project WOW objectives are:

  1. Gap analysis, risk assessment, and research framework development

  2. Targeted data collection and technology validation. 

This project will provide wind energy developers, regulators, and other stakeholders with advanced and unified frameworks for environmental assessment at site-specific and regional scales. The frameworks will facilitate the design, development, and responsible management of offshore wind energy in the United States.
