The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s Office of Renewable Energy Programs held the “Best Management Practices Workshop for Atlantic Offshore Wind Facilities and Marine Protected Species” March 7-9, 2017. The workshop informed best management practices for avoiding, reducing, and monitoring impacts to marine protected species from the development of offshore wind on the Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf. This report summarises the workshop presentations and outcomes.
