As states look to meet their renewable energy goals, many are turning to their harbors and coastal areas to fill the growing energy gap. At the same time, these waterways experience growing pressures from the shipping industry, fisheries, and coastal communities. This panel looks at the range of roles and responsibilities for co-existence of these stakeholders. Representatives from wind developers, fisheries, and the maritime industries discuss current approaches to cooperation that bring together the government, offshore wind, fishing, and academic communities to study impacts before the first major projects are constructed.

Available for CEUs from APA, AIA & ASLA
Panel sponsored by City Experiences
