Environmental and Human Dimensions of Ocean Renewable Energy Development

  title={Environmental and Human Dimensions of Ocean Renewable Energy Development},
  author={Sarah K. Henkel and Flaxen D. L. Conway and George W. Boehlert},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
A number of review articles have synthesized current expert opinion regarding interactions of ocean energy generation technologies with environmental parameters and their potential effects and impacts. Fewer articles have documented such interactions, as operational devices and or demonstration sites at which to make such observations are limited. In this paper, we discuss how the perceived risk or impact of ocean renewable energy development on coastal communities (both the human and marine… CONTINUE READING
