DOE Partners on Sea Grant Liaison to Connect Communities to Info and Research on Offshore Wind Energy Development

Sept. 8, 2021

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) Rhode Island Sea Grant have partnered to create a new Offshore Wind Liaison, who will connect community stakeholders to information resources and research about offshore wind energy development. By providing information, supporting technical assistance, and sharing valuable resources, the Liaison will help empower communities to engage in offshore wind energy development decisions. The position is part of NOAA’s collaboration with other federal agencies on six new liaison positions intended to connect communities with federally funded research and information on a range of topics.
