Sustainability Forum Luncheon: March 19 in Beverly
Full Title: Offshore Wind Power Update – When Will We Benefit from this Green Resource?
Speaker: Amber Hewett, Campaign Manager, Offshore Wind Energy, National Wildlife Federation
Advance Registration is appreciated – Walkins are welcomed; $15 for all walkins.
On August 8, 2016, Governor Baker made history by signing into law the nation’s largest commitment to offshore wind power. With America’s first five offshore wind turbines up and running in Rhode Island, New York on track to build fifteen more, contracts in place in Maryland, and New Jersey’s brand new governor holding a campaign pledge of more than double the Commonwealth’s commitment Massachusetts remains the only state in the procurement stage of fulfilling a utility-scale requirement to this massive clean energy resource. The industry is certainly building momentum, but major questions are still to be answered:
The National Wildlife Federation’s Amber Hewett will dig into all of this and much more – leaving us with a big picture understanding of what needs to happen to start bringing the benefits of offshore wind power to the U.S., where challenges may arise, and why Massachusetts should already be thinking beyond its first 1,600 megawatts.
