Blowin’ in the Wind?
August 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Illustrated Lecture on The Latest on Offshore Wind Development in the Northeast
The Block Island Wind Farm, the United States’ first and only offshore wind farm to date, began supplying renewable energy to Block Island and mainland Rhode Island in 2016. This five-turbine, nearshore project is likely to be only the first of many larger offshore wind farms to be developed further offshore in the waters off New England and the Mid-Atlantic.
Dr. Tiffany Smythe, professor of maritime policy at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, will provide an update on offshore wind development throughout the region and share highlights of her research on the political and social dimensions of offshore wind farms.
