The Northeast Sea Grant Consortium (NESGC), consisting of the New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, MIT, Woods Hole, New Hampshire, and Maine Sea Grant College Programs, in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA)’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wind Energy Technologies Office and Water Power Technologies Office (Funders), is seeking proposals to improve understanding of the effects on coastal communities including the fishing industry by ocean renewable energy (ORE) (e.g., wind and hydrokinetic [wave, current, and tidal energy]) development in the U.S. Northeast (New York Bight through the Gulf of Maine).
Through this competition, the NESGC seeks to catalyze social science and technology research in the Northeast that will further our understanding of the effects of ORE on community resilience and economies. Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), the NESGC and its funding partners are providing a regional approach to supporting objective research on ORE across stakeholders, including developers, communities, fishers, etc.
Successful research proposals will undertake collaborative, multidisciplinary, and/or innovative approaches with results that will be applicable and/or useful to stakeholders and users throughout the Northeast region. ORE development is an issue of regional importance, and research approaches that incorporate and address specific regional aspects and applicability of the topic are encouraged.
