CSCR Lecture Series continues with Offshore Wind: Power, Policy, and Promise by John Rogers, Senior Energy Analyst, Union of Concerned Scientists.  

Seminar Abstract

How we make and use electricity has been a big part of U.S. carbon pollution for decades. But the power sector also offers some of the best opportunities for cutting carbon, with a range of commercially ready, cost-effective options. Now a new tool in the US clean energy toolbox is rising off our coasts: offshore wind. How do turbines taller than the Washington Monument, able to power a house for a day with a single spin of the blades, fit the Northeast energy scene and our need for environmental progress and economic development? Where do things stand in New England, in the Mid-Atlantic, and from the Carolinas to California (and Cleveland)? Mr. Rogers will describe the role of offshore wind in fueling clean energy momentum in Massachusetts and beyond, and where the technology—and we—might be headed.
