Offshore Wind Knowledge Exchanges
Knowledge Exchanges with Regional Stakeholders about Proposed Offshore Wind Projects (2017-2020): With competitive grants awarded by First State Marine Wind, Bonnie interviewed dozens of local stakeholders and decision makers about their views and perceptions about renewable energy. Two in-person workshops and several visual webinars were designed around their concerns and focused on the two proposed offshore wind sites off the coast of Delaware and Maryland. See Power point presentations here.
In 2020, these knowledge exchanges are continuing with our co-hosts Assateague Coastal Trust and Audubon Society MD-DC Chapter to discuss the proposed offshore wind project in Ocean City.
