From theory through to practice, we explore these challenges in more detail to demonstrate why RPS is the right partner to help navigate the complex regulatory environment for offshore wind farm developments in fast-growing markets - making complex easy.
The U.S. offshore wind market is maturing rapidly. For developers, government, and contractors, navigating complex regulatory permitting requirements will require consultants like RPS who have the capability and capacity to support this growing demand.
In this article our team discusses some of the likely permitting challenges, and how RPS supports our clients to avoid delays.
In this article, the second in our North America offshore regulatory permitting series, we deliver an overview of the U.S. permitting regime and our insight regarding the Construction and Operations Plan (COP), some of the associated challenges and potential solutions.
Submitted as part of a Construction and Operations Plan, a project design envelope allows lessees to outline a range of design parameters for their offshore wind project. Adoption of this approach is optional, but the advantages make it well worth a developer’s time, effort, and investment!
Environmental compliance for offshore wind is not limited to what happens in the COP. What are the compliance activities developers need to know about and how can you plan them effectively? It could work out as a long list! To help you keep track, we've compiled a handy checklist, focusing on federal permits.
