Jan 13 Sustainability Forum LUNCHEON SEMINAR: What’s Next for Offshore Wind Power?

Speaker: Amber Hewett, Regional Campaign Coordinator,
National Wildlife Federation

Description

Massachusetts legislators and Governor Baker have the opportunity to encourage the replacement of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station’s nuclear energy with zero-carbon power by tapping the massive energy resource sitting right over our horizon: offshore wind. There is enough power to replace Pilgrim several times over in areas currently designated for wind energy development far off the coast of Massachusetts. Leading global developers have competitively purchased leases in those areas and are ready to build reliable, local, rate-stabilizing power into our energy mix at a scale that matches the Commonwealth’s urgent needs. The National Wildlife Federation’s Amber Hewitt will present an overview of the current state of these potential wind projects and will detail some of the issues to be addressed in the path forward to a clean energy future.
