The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Division of Science, Research & Technology (now the Office of Science), issued a Solicitation for Research Proposals (SRP) to address the need for baseline ecological/natural resource data as recommended by the State of New Jersey Blue Ribbon Panel on Development of Wind Turbine Facilities in Coastal Waters.
The objective of this study is to conduct baseline studies in waters off New Jersey's coast to determine the current distribution and usage of this area by ecological resources. The scope of work includes the collection of data on the distribution, abundance and migratory patterns of avian, marine mammal, sea turtle and other species in the study area over a 24-month period. Please visit The NJDEP Division of Science, Research & Technology (DSRT) to read the latest information on this study. The final report was released on July 23, 2010.
The New Jersey Offshore Wind Feasibility Study was prepared for the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities by Atlantic Renewable Energy Corporation and AWS Scientific, Inc and completed in November of 2004.
The purpose of the study was to investigate the feasibility of utility-scale wind energy development in the waters off the shore of New Jersey. The only viable opportunities for significant large-scale wind development are considered to be off shore where the wind resources are much stronger and where certain land use conflicts can be avoided. The information provided by this report is intended to inform potential stakeholders about waters for future development. The goal is to characterize the siting considerations including various geophysical, environmental, regulatory and commercial parameters that off shore wind energy development will have to address if seriously pursued in New Jersey.
