HRC comments on MMS' proposed rule

HRC commented on the final Environmental Impact Statement prepared by the Mineral Management Service (MMS) regarding establishment of a program for authorizing alternative energy and alternate use (AEAU) activities on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The Energy Policy Act of 2005 granted authority to MMS through the DOI to regulate energy production activities in the outer continental shelf. Such activities include hydrokinetic projects such as the wave energy, and ocean current energy.
