Offshore Renewable Energy Projects Funded

The Northeast Sea Grant Consortium, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office and Water Power Technologies Office and our science center, announced funding for six projects to advance social science and technology research on offshore renewable energy in the Northeast. The selected projects were collectively awarded more than $1.1 million in federal funds, with each project matching 50 percent in non-federal funds. This research will provide community-focused tools needed for equitable and sustainable development of our region’s coastal and ocean resources.
