The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is hosting its second State of the Science Workshop on Offshore Wind Energy on November 16-20, 2020.
The 2020 State of the Science Workshop is being held virtually this year in response to COVID-19. Workshop efforts remain focused on (1) assessing the state of the knowledge regarding offshore wind development’s cumulative effects on populations and ecosystems, and (2) working to identify key studies that could be conducted in the next 3-5 years to improve our understanding of cumulative biological impacts as the offshore wind industry develops in the U.S.
Plenary presentations and Q&A panel discussions will occur via an online event platform throughout the week of November 16-20. Smaller working meetings will be held virtually in late 2020 and early 2021, and efforts will culminate in a final webinar in the Spring of 2021 to report the outcomes of the breakout group efforts.
The Whova event platform has both a web version and mobile app that allows for easy access to the agenda, live-streamed sessions, community boards and more. Workshop registrants will need to create an account in Whova to access workshop sessions. More information can be found on the Workshop Logistics page.
