Though it lags behind other areas, the US offshore wind industry is growing quickly with substantial construction set to occur in the coming years.  The potential for impacts to wildlife is important to consider as we strive to responsibly develop this vital renewable energy source.  We will discuss lessons learned from other areas of the world where offshore wind has been extensively developed, and how we can incorporate these lessons with the community of stakeholders in the US to create a responsible supply of clean energy.


This event is presented as part of Duke University’s The Future of Our Oceans Webinar Series with partnership from Oceans@Duke, The  Nicholas School of the Environment, The Center for Energy, Development and Global Development at The Fuqua School of Business, and the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions.
