  1. FERC, Coast Guard agree to cooperate in licensing of hydrokinetic energy projects

    The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard have signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate in the development and licensing of hydrokinetic energy projects, including ocean energy and stream power projects. FERC and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management previously issued guidelines for development of marine hydrokinetic projects on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf. The FERC-Coast Guard memorandum, released March 12, is to advance interagency cooperation in protecting navigation safety, maritime security, and environmental resources when considering license proposals for hydrokinetic energy projects. "Hydrokinetic development is an up and coming resource and this MOU provides valuable coordination between FERC and the Coast Guard to ensure an efficient process while protecting valuable environmental resources," FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff said. FERC reviews the siting of, and issues licenses for, the construction and operation of non-federal hydropower projects including hydrokinetic projects. The Coast Guard regulates, and is an expert on, matters related to safety of navigation, maritime security, and marine environmental stewardship in waters subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. "The goal of the participating agencies is to create an efficiency of effort and maximize the exchange of relevant information to provide developers of hydrokinetic projects and stakeholders with an efficient and predictable review process that is responsive to identified issues and considers appropriate protection, mitigation, and enhancement measures," the MOU said. The agencies said the agreement would improve their ability to establish a joint timetable, identify critical issues early, acquire and share information efficiently, and collaborate on analysis. The memorandum of understanding may be obtained from the FERC Internet site, www.ferc.gov , under http://www.ferc.gov/legal/maj-ord-reg/mou/mou-uscg-03-2013.pdf .
