Environmental Impact Protocols for Tidal Power
CX(s) Applied: A9, B3.1, B3.3, B3.6
Location(s): Cobscook Bay, Maine
Office(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Golden Field Office
The Maine Tidal Power Initiative would develop baseline resource and environmental data for the Cobscook Bay and Western Passage in Maine to evaluate the approach for future tidal power applications. A Department of Energy (DOE) determination was completed June 15, 2010 authorizing the majority of this project. At this time, the DOE is now re-evaluating net sampling for fish into 2011 (Task 2).
