Environmental effects from wave and tidal devices continue to slow and complicate consenting, and impedes the development of the marine energy industry. There is not an adequate track record of long-term operations upon which to base consenting decisions, causing regulators and stakeholders to have concerns. Ocean Energy Systems-Environmental seeks to understand and develop processes to simply consenting by applying existing data and research findings to these challenges, through a process known as Risk Retirement.
This webinar will present the uncertainties around potential effects of wave and tidal devices and describe the process for simplifying data collection and evidence bases that support risk retirement.
Dr Andrea Copping will be providing a 40min presentation followed by 20min Q&A.
