CFF is committed to supporting sustainable technologies and renewable energies such as offshore wind. Offshore wind is a powerful resource and could contribute significantly to global, national, and regional carbon reduction and renewable energy goals. However, there are significant impacts connected to offshore wind that are not being discussed or researched fully; namely, the lack of ecological baseline research and the socioeconomic impacts of a fully developed lease area on the established and currently thriving seafood industry of New Bedford. Thanks to our generous donors, CFF is researching how offshore wind and regional fishers and processors can come together to ensure the sustainability and resiliency of both industries.
