Alternative Ocean Energy Policy

While meeting in Newport, Ore. on June 28th, the Surfrider Foundation Board of Directors passed an Alternative Ocean Energy Policy that defines our approach toward renewable energy projects along the worlds coasts and oceans. The policy highlights the importance of seeking energy sources that can reduce our dependency of fossil fuels, while also adequately addressing environmental, public safety, and recreational issues. This adopted global policy was heavily based on the Oregon Wave Energy Statement that was crafted by our chapters and statewide membership last year.
