Streamlining Offshore Wind Development for Georgia
Georgia has tremendous offshore wind energy potential, however with any offshore wind effort, there are a variety of factors and potential conflicts to resolve. There are different stakeholders and offshore activities to consider, and the permitting process involves agencies at all levels. Georgia Tech and Georgia Department of Natural Resources came together to create a data application that would help put all the pieces of the puzzle together. The Georgia Coastal and Marine Planner provides online access to local data and data sets and services from MarineCadastre.gov regarding coastal and ocean resources to help facilitate the offshore wind conversation.
