ProtectedSeas staff helps inform US Offshore Wind Energy Atlas

Sep 15, 2023

Offshore wind energy is on the way to becoming a significant U.S. renewable energy source. Recently, Anna-Katharina von Krauland co-authored the US offshore wind energy atlas.  “The ProtectedSeas dataset provides an intuitive and integrated resource for understanding otherwise fragmented marine spatial planning data, which along with the expert advice offered by the team, was hugely helpful in determining which regulations pertain specifically to wind energy development, ultimately enabling a more realistic atlas.”
