EnBW North America partners with communities to establish renewable energy solutions that will deliver lasting economic and environmental benefits to achieve our shared climate goals. We are a subsidiary of EnBW AG, a global clean energy company that has a history of imagining and building abetter energy future. We bring that same drive and creativity to meet the unique needs of the US market.
EnBW has a portfolio of nearly 1,000 MW of offshore wind projects under operation in Europe and more than 6,000 MW under development globally. In North America, we are working to stand up the emerging offshore wind industry and help states meet their ambitious clean energy goals. It is to this end that we are seeking a Fisheries Liaison to support outreach and engagement with local fishing communities in the New York Bight region and along the East Coast in relation to our offshore wind project development activities. This critical role will serve as a key point of contact for EnBW North America with commercial and recreational fishermen, fishing industry representatives, and fishery associations.
The Fisheries Liaison will support EnBW’s New York Bight offshore wind project. We are currently interested in contracting for this position with the potential to convert to a full-time role in early 2022.
The Fisheries Liaison will work to foster a transparent, two-way dialogue between EnBW North America and the fishing community in order to seek input from fishermen on offshore wind related developments, provide the fishing community with clear and timely understanding of EnBW North America activities, engage in group or one-on-one stakeholder discussions, and report to EnBW North America on safety concerns, opinions, fishing practices, equipment, and other factors to be taken into consideration in the siting, planning, and development of offshore wind projects.
