Abstract or Summary
  • Since 2006 Oregon has promoted the development of wave energy off its coast. While the state may be well suited for the technology because of an abundant wave resource and supporting coastal infrastructure there remain potential barriers to implementing this policy, including uncertainties about the technology and concerns for impacts to the local environment and existing ocean users. Among many studies commissioned to address these uncertainties, this study conducts a stakeholder analysis using an Advocacy Coalition Framework to map the political landscape and identify areas of census and potential barriers among key policy actors. Key findings in this study indicate general support for testing wave energy, but that inflexibility in project location and efforts to develop commercial scale wave parks are areas of division among policy actors.
