Responsible Stewardship For a Sustainable Future For many years, CES was commissioned to develop conference programs addressing environmental concerns and issues that were synergistic with the Center's mission. Below is a list of some of our previous conferences with links to the websites, conference proceedings, reports and presentations. If you would like more information on our climate change-focused workshops, please go to our main conferences page.
This Conference brought together researchers, developers, federal and state agencies, industry and scientists to explore cutting-edge science and technology to identify gaps in the current state of knowledge regarding the environmental impacts of renewable ocean energy. The effects on the marine environment of large-scale hydrokinetic and thermal power generation are largely unknown. Marine ecosystems include many protected species which rely on complex food chains and undertake extensive migration patterns. Understanding how the operations of power generation systems will interact with these marine ecosystems will be a critical first step toward deploying equipment in a sustainable fashion.
Held annually, this statewide conference addresses land acquisition and management issues in Florida. PLAM is hosted on a rotating basis by the five Water Management Districts and the Department of Environmental Protection. CES has coordinated these conferences since 2000.
