What if offshore wind turbines could do more than just produce energy, but provide society with a sustainable source of food, jobs, and power? Drawing on her experience converting offshore oil platforms into artificial reefs, marine conservation biologist Emily Hazelwood reimagines the future of our offshore energy landscape by exploring areas in our oceans where industry and the environment doesn’t just co-exist, but thrive. Emily is a co-founder of Blue Latitudes, a women-owned marine environmental consulting firm.
