On December 12, Simon Geerlofs and Dr. Andrea Copping from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) will be presenting to the Marine Energy Council on the latest developments with the Annex IV project. Annex IV was established in 2010 to examine environmental effects of marine energy development, with the U.S. Department of Energy acting as the operating agent and PNNL utilizing Tethys as the platform on which Annex IV activities are coordinated and recorded. Currently in its third phase (2016–2020), a major focus of Annex IV is on data transferability and collection consistency. By transferring what has been learned through research and monitoring from one project to another, Annex IV aims to reduce the costs for baseline environmental studies and post-installation monitoring, decrease uncertainty, and facilitate a common understanding of effects, in order to accelerate permitting processes.
The presentation will last approximately 45 minutes and will be immediately followed by a 15-minute period for Q&A. Please contact Michael Weiner or Reenst Lesemann in order to register and to receive copies of the presentation that will be discussed during the call. You can also register here.
