EA-1965: Final Environmental Assessment

Florida Atlantic University Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center’s Offshore Marine Hydrokinetic Technology Testing Project, Florida

The U.S. Department of the Interior's (DOI), Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) prepared this EA and DOE served as a cooperating agency.  DOE's proposed action was to provide federal funding to Florida Atlantic University Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center to install a non-grid connected offshore test berth and test a variety of small-scale research and development ocean current turbine units on public lands managed by the DOI's BOEM off the cost of Broward County, Florida.  The EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with the determination of whether to issue a lease that would authorize technology testing within an area offshore Florida.
