Right Whales, Lobsters, and "Incidental Take" Permits Under the Endangered Species Act: A Case Study
Please join Ed Roggenkamp on October 14th as he presents "Right Whales, Lobsters, and 'Incidental Take' Permits Under the Endangered Species Act: A Case Study" during the American Wind Energy Association's (AWEA) Offshore Windpower Virtual Summit.
The presentation will examine a recent April 2020 ruling and the complex interaction between the Endangered Species Act and Marine Mammal Protection Act. Ed will discuss the important implications this ruling has for the permitting of offshore wind and litigation risk from project opponents. He will also examine how the upcoming decision on whether to prohibit static vertical lines in areas off the East Coast may also have implications for mooring cables for floating turbines.
This year's AWEA Windpower Virtual Summit will focus on the critical role the offshore wind industry will play in America's economic recovery for decades to come. Industry professionals will gather to discuss ways to build this industry inclusively and responsibly, and cultivate the next generation of clean energy leaders. Participants in this virtual event will have available live presentations, on-demand sessions, matchmaking, a marketplace of product & service providers and unique shared social experiences.
