The biennial State of the Science workshop is hosted by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) on behalf of the Environmental Technical Working Group (E-TWG), with the goal of sharing knowledge about offshore wind energy development, wildlife, and fisheries in the eastern United States and beyond.

Yaeli Rosenberg, PhD., Head of Biology at ECOncrete, will be presenting ‘Evaluating the Environmental Performance of a Newly Designed Ecological Scour Protection Unit’. Yaeli will also share preliminary results from our 2-year biological survey that utilized different methods to better understand the ecological impact of scour protection units on the sea floor.

Time: 11:00 am- 12:30 pm Sessions 23- 24
Mitigation Approaches for Wildlife and Fisheries
Location: Auditorium and Ballroom B
