New York State Environmental and Fisheries Research Program Opportunity Notice
In March 2019, NYSERDA issued a Program Opportunity Notice (PON) to support independent research to improve the scientific and technical foundation for addressing key policy-relevant questions related to the development of offshore wind and stakeholder-identified environmental and fisheries concerns. The solicitation focuses on five topics including ecosystem dynamics, commercial fishing access, pre- and post-construction monitoring, non-traditional data, and Cold Pool stratification.
Proposers interested in collaborating and identifying other potential proposers to work with should email Kate McClellan Press email@example.com with the following information: name, email address, categories (example: A, C2), and a brief description (<250 words) of what you offer another team or what you are looking for to augment your team.
25 June 2019 - Environmental Technical Working Group meeting, New York City
The Offshore Wind Master Plan for the State of New York includes the formation of a collaborative and science-focused Environmental Technical Working Group (E-TWG). The E-TWG oversees Specialist Committees and provides multi-partisan advice and guidance to the State about measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate anticipated impacts on wildlife during offshore wind energy development activities.
Offshore wind energy developers, environmental non-governmental organizations (eNGOs), government agencies, and other subject matter experts are advising the state on how to proceed with developing offshore wind energy in ways that protect wildlife and the environment.
