About

Back to top

Though it lags behind other areas, the U.S. 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. This Oceans @ Duke webinar 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 U.S. to create a responsible supply of clean energy.
