Marine Energy: Exploring Environmental Effects, Powering Ocean Observations with Andrea Copping

January 25, 2022

Marine renewable energy stands to do a great deal of good. The ocean’s wave, current, and tidal energy holds the promise of electricity that can help power the grid, strengthen scientific observations, and bring renewable power to coastal communities. But how do marine animals like sharks and whales coexist with marine energy devices? What are the potential impacts? PNNL oceanographer and senior research scientist Andrea Copping leads research that explores these important questions. Join us today as we dive deep into her findings and discuss not only what the science says, but how the investigations unfold.
