Ed Roggenkamp Discusses Impact of Floating Turbine Use in Offshore Wind Projects
Ed Roggenkamp was quoted in the Bloomberg Law story “Floating Turbines Eyed to Ease Offshore Wind’s Permitting Woes.” The article provides an overview of how offshore wind supporters are hopeful that floating turbines backed by the Biden administration will help minimize legal conflicts with projects, while developing a U.S. supply chain to leverage renewable energy potential along the country’s coastlines.
While discussing the impact floating turbines might have on lawsuits against projects, Ed said, “The deployment of floating turbines … has the potential to reduce conflicts with fishing and conflicts with shoreline communities for visual impacts. Does that mean it’s going to reduce them to zero? Probably not.”
