HMMH Prepares New Tidal Energy Environmental Evaluation
The University of New Hampshire (UNH) Center for Ocean Renewable Energy (CORE) is proposing to develop a tidal energy testing site at the General Sullivan Bridge in Great Bay Estuary, Newington, New Hampshire. The US Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded UNH a grant under its Advanced Water Power Program to help develop the site and support the testing and advancement of tidal energy technologies.
UNH has contracted with HMMH to prepare a biological evaluation to facilitate the DOE’s formal consultation with other federal agencies under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to address the potential effects of the UNH-CORE Infrastructure Enhancements Project on the environment. HMMH’s work is expected to be completed this spring.
