NOAA science supports New York's offshore energy planning
Date:3/20/2012

rly helpful to the offshore renewable energy development interests in their siting decisions.

"Developing these studies with our regional and state decision-making partners ensures their needs are met and that NOAA's expertise is being leveraged to balance the protection of the natural ecological resources along the coast and needs of the users in the region, namely renewable wind energy," said David Kennedy, assistant NOAA administrator for the National Ocean Service. "Working together early in the process is not only more time efficient and economical, but leads to better science-based decisions."

Information from this study, one of several regional studies underway at NCCOS, will serve as a model to support inter-state planning initiatives launched by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean. The regional government council works to maintain and improve the health of ocean and coastal resources, and ensure that they continue to contribute to the high quality of life and economic vitality of the region.

"This collaboration, which culminates with today's study, has shown how NOAA can work with states interested in answering similar energy questions," said Chris Caldow, NCCOS biogeography branch chief and NOAA lead on the project. "The study's success shows that our sound science and expertise provide a valuable resource for the nation."

"This great partnership between NOAA and the State of New York is bringing important scientific information into the management process up front," said Eric Schwaab, NOAA assistant secretary for conservation and management. "This is exactly the type of benefit envisioned by President Obama's National Ocean Policy and we are happy to see it in action."
