Before construction begins on an offshore wind farm, there is a rigorous process of assessing ecological and human impacts, obtaining any federal and state permits, and engaging with stakeholders. This process is expensive, lengthy, and vital to the successful installation of an offshore wind farm. A thorough understanding of these procedures is essential to all professionals in the offshore wind industry. This course is designed to guide the student through this process, from the time the potential offshore wind development site has been identified, until construction is complete and the wind farm is operational.
