California Offshore Wind Energy Gateway Launched

May 15, 2018

The Conservation Biology Institute, with support from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, recently launched the California Offshore Wind Energy Gateway, a website that assembles “geospatial information on ocean wind resources, ecological and natural resources, ocean commercial and recreational uses, and community values.” This information will help identify areas off the California coast that are potentially suitable for wind energy generation and development.
