New York State Environmental Technical Working Group

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has brought together a team of stakeholders for advice on how to advance offshore wind energy development in environmentally responsible ways. The New York State Environmental Technical Working Group (E-TWG) is made up of offshore wind developers, environmental non-profit organizations, state and federal regulatory agencies, and others, and provides advice and guidance to help steer the State’s efforts to advance offshore wind development in environmentally responsible ways. BRI provides technical support for this effort.
