ECOWind: Partnership Investigates Offshore Wind Affect on Marine Life

ECOWind: Partnership Investigates Offshore Wind Affect on Marine Life

Offshore wind farms have a key role to play if the UK is to meet its climate ambitions, yet the cumulative effects of offshore wind on the marine environment alongside other human activities are still not well understood. The new Ecological Consequences of Offshore Wind research programme (ECOWind) will help answer these unknowns and deliver policy-ready solutions that aim to enable offshore wind and thriving marine ecosystems to coexist and to promote environmental restoration.
