Jurisdictional scan of suitable area definition for offshore wind development / prepared for Natural Resources Canada, Renewable and Electrical Energy Division ; prepared by CanmetENERGY-Ottawa, Buildings...: M154-136/2020E-PDF
"CanmetENERGY-Ottawa (CE-O) has been engaged by the Renewable and Electrical Energy Division (REED) within Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to conduct preliminary research and analysis to support future decision making regarding offshore wind in Canada. This study examines approaches taken in other jurisdictions to characterize the various technical, environmental and socio-economic considerations deemed relevant to offshore wind, and to document steps taken within the jurisdictions to establish offshore wind leasing areas, if applicable. This information is expected to be valuable should an exercise be undertaken in the future to evaluate appropriate areas for offshore wind in Canada"--Executive summary, page iii.
