Engaging Communities in Offshore Wind: Case Studies and Lessons Learned from New England Islands

Sarah Klain collaborated with the non-profit organization Island Institute to report on lessons learned about community engagement, community benefits and offshore wind farms proposed near three New England islands. Residents of these island are likely to be the first impacted by offshore wind farms in North America. Island community members may influence the future of this industry by obstructing (e.g., filing lawsuits), accommodating or championing this new use of ocean space.
