Offshore Wind Power in New York State: Stakeholder Survey and Review

Marc Vigliotti, EMPA 2016

This is the first offshore wind stakeholder survey conducted in New York State. It examines the
opportunity and policy landscape, describes the survey methods, and details the key findings
from the data. A literature review examines the opposition points for validity and explores
mitigation measures. Finally, an examination of similar studies provides a path forward for a
successful offshore wind project and pitfalls to avoid.
