Description: 
The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has contracted the University of Rhode Island (URI) to document the effects of the Block Island Wind Farm on recreation and tourism in Rhode Island.
 
The intent of the project is to also provide:
  • The first available empirical data on the effects of a U.S. offshore wind farm on coastal recreation and tourism.
  • A suite of indicators that can be used to assess the potential effects of future offshore wind energy projects throughout the U.S.
  • A recommended subset of indicators that can be used to monitor the effects of the wind farm on Rhode Island’s recreation and tourism activities moving forward.

These three results will help BOEM plan for the installation and management of future offshore wind energy projects in federal waters. https://www.boem.gov/AT-16-x23/
