WREN Webinar: Wind Energy Development Impacts on Marine Environment
This information was last updated on 6/23/2016
11 a.m. ET
This WREN Environmental Webinar was developed as part of the International Energy Agency's Wind Task 34 (also known as WREN: Working Together to Resolve Environmental Effects of Wind Energy). The webinar will examine sound-monitoring research and mitigation to help protect marine life from the impacts of wind energy development-related sounds produced during the building phases and types of foundations. It will last roughly 90 minutes with time for questions and answers at the end.
Presenters are Frank Thomsen, DHI, Denmark, and Brandon Southall, Southall Environmental Associates.
This webinar series supports WREN's goal to facilitate international collaboration that advances global understanding of environmental effects of offshore and land-based wind energy development. Participant login instructions can be found on the WREN Hub.

State RPS policies have been a foundation for U.S. renewable energy growth over the past decade. While some state targets will soon reach their peak, other states have recently renewed their commitments, expanding and extending their RPS to ensure another decade or more of continued growth. Galen Barbose from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will highlight key findings from a recently released report, U.S. Renewables Portfolio Standards: 2016 Annual Status Report. This new annual report describes recent legislative revisions, key policy design features, past and projected impacts on renewables development, compliance trends, and costs. The report is accompanied by data files and infographics, also available for download at rps.lbl.gov.

Indian land represents less than 2% of the total U.S. land base but contains an estimated 5% of all U.S. renewable energy generation potential. This disproportionate wealth in renewable resources represents an untapped opportunity for tribal economic development and points to clean energy deployment as a vital pathway to economic sovereignty for tribal nations. In addition to improving economic health and quality of life in tribal communities, energy development can support stronger economies in the surrounding regions. Learn about the economic development potential and job creation benefits of clean energy projects on tribal lands through case studies presented by two tribes with defined long-term energy goals, and discover a modeling tool for quantifying the economic impacts.
This webinar is part of the 2016 Tribal Energy and Economic Development Webinar Series, produced by the Office of Indian Energy in partnership with Western Area Power Administration. If you cannot participate in the live webinar, you can access recordings and slides after the webinar in Western's webinar library.
