BOEM Director Amanda Lefton joins host Brandon Burke to discuss the agency’s vision and the future of offshore wind. They also cover the recent release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Vineyard Wind project, and how BOEM is addressing permitting for floating offshore wind projects in federal waters.
