Environmental and Fisheries Research to Support Offshore Wind Development

NYSERDA is seeking independent research through the Program Opportunity Notice (PON). This research will help NYSERDA achieve responsible and cost-effective offshore wind development as it advances New York State’s nation-leading goal – mandated by The Climate Act – to generate 9,000 megawatts of offshore wind by 2035. A better understanding of potential interactions with the environment and fisheries will support responsible development, increase awareness of stakeholder concerns, and help NYSERDA identify and reduce risks before accelerating offshore wind project development.
