The Future of Offshore Wind in New England
Amber Hewett, the newly appointed co-chair of the MA Offshore Wind Committee, will present on the future of offshore wind for New England and Massachusetts. She will discuss:
- Legislative developments for Offshore Wind in Massachusetts and surrounding states;
- New hope for Vineyard Wind in Nantucket Sound: fewer turbines, a new configuration, and the project’s possibilities for approval at the Board of Ocean Energy Management;
- Offshore wind in the Gulf of Maine including the latest updates on projected developments;
- Why all of us who live in New England should support Offshore Wind as one of the main ways to decarbonize our region and economy.
