Floating Offshore Wind Research Array: A Workshop to Build Knowledge and Further Stakeholder Engagement - For All Those Interested

February 5, 2021 12:30 PM – 5:00 PM

(Register Here)

The State of Maine is pursuing the development of a floating offshore wind research array in the Gulf of Maine through the Governor’s Energy Office (GEO) and in collaboration with the Department of Marine Resources (DMR). This workshop is the next step in the State’s process to give fishermen and other stakeholders direct influence in the development of the proposed project. The workshop will set the direction for the work ahead in the coming months and launch two working groups – one focused on fisheries issues and one focused on wildlife issues.

Please join us to participate in A Workshop to Build Knowledge and Further Stakeholder Engagement for Maine’s Offshore Wind Research Array to help shape this project.
