CLEE Offshore Wind Posts & Papers

CLEE’s offshore wind initiative brings together stakeholders from a wide array of sectors (including government (federal, state, local, tribal), wind developers, environmental justice organizations, labor representatives, fishing representatives, environmental protection groups, port managers, and more) to improve communication throughout the offshore wind planning process. CLEE first began its work on California offshore wind (OSW) in 2020 by convening various stakeholders to discuss the challenges of, and attempt to find common ground on, environmental mitigation in offshore wind development. In 2022, CLEE held a convening series to advance discussions around topics like transmission and federal lease stipulations, among other topics. In addition to holding stakeholder discussions and conducting outreach, CLEE conducts policy research and generates recommendations about offshore wind planning topics.
