  • Description:
    This report summarizes the outcomes of a March 22-25, 2010, workshop in Seattle, Washington, on the environmental effects of tidal energy development. The workshop focused on building capabilities to evaluate the environmental effects of tidal energy from turbines placed in the water column throughout the United States. However, it did not address policy issues, details of technology engineering, or the socioeconomic impacts of tidal energy development. Two overarching conclusions were identified. First, given the number of potential stressor/receptor interactions, research efforts must be prioritized and leveraged in order to effectively direct limited research dollars and resolve key uncertainties in a timely manner. Second, the next step to reducing critical uncertainties is careful monitoring of pilot scale device deployments. This report contains recommendations relevant to tidal energy device and project developers, monitoring instrumentation developers, scientists, and regulatory agencies.
