Annex IV 2014 Workshop Final Report

Best Practices for Monitoring Environmental Effects of Marine Energy Devices

Under the sponsorship of Annex IV, a 1-day workshop was held in conjunction with the EIMR (Environmental Impacts of Marine Renewables) conference in Stornoway, United Kingdom (UK), on April 29 2014. Support for the workshop was provided by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the EIMR conference, and was organized by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) with assistance from the DOE Wind and Water Power Technologies Office and the Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center.

The workshop was designed to take the next logical step toward decreasing uncertainty and understanding the risks inherent in deploying wave and tidal devices in coastal marine waters.
