Expired PAEP Webinar – May 3, 2023

Offshore Wind Environmental Assessment and Permitting in the US

Offshore wind is poised to be an important part of the US energy mix. This second presentation in the offshore wind series will focus on the environmental assessment and permitting of the proposed offshore wind projects. Monitoring and mitigation measures required by the regulatory agencies during project construction and operation will also be discussed.

Presenter: Amardeep Dhanju is a Senior Project Manager at AECOM where he supports permitting and development of utility-scale offshore wind and other renewables. Prior to joining AECOM, he supported the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) as a Senior Policy Analyst. At BOEM, he facilitated the offshore oil & gas leasing program, helped streamline offshore wind regulations, coordinated the nation’s first National Ocean Policy, and supported environmental permitting of offshore wind projects.

From 2013-2017, Amardeep co-chaired an interagency group in the National Ocean Council (NOC) to coordinate Federal engagement in the National Ocean Policy and marine spatial planning. This engagement resulted in two certified regional ocean plans on the U.S. east coast to inform siting of new ocean uses such as offshore wind power. Amardeep was awarded the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) Partners in Conservation Award for leading this initiative. Amardeep is an adjunct faculty at Johns Hopkins University Energy Policy and Climate program where he offers graduate courses and mentors students on their capstone projects. Amardeep holds a Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. He is a 2010 Knauss Sea Grant fellow.
