Fishing Industry, Business, and Academia: Transmission system needed now to achieve offshore wind goals
The Massachusetts Legislature’s proposals for an ambitious expansion of offshore wind procurement goals have prompted representatives of the fishing industry, business community, and academia to call for early action on an offshore transmission system to minimize impacts on fisheries and the environment, reduce costs, and achieve decarbonization goals.Read More
New York and New Jersey may have their offshore wind goals nailed down, but how to bring the power to land remains very much in the air.
The Brattle Group released a report titled Offshore Wind Transmission: An Analysis of Options for New York describing the pivotal role of transmission policy in the development of New York’s offshore wind industry. They presented their findings in a virtual forum hosted by the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, Anbaric and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law.
Anbaric has announced that it will sponsor the Northeast Clean Energy Council’s (NECEC) Clean Energy Back to Work Challenge.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) scheduled a full day Technical Conference to evaluate potential reforms needed to enable independent offshore transmission.
Anbaric has submitted a proposal to ISO New England to replace the gas-powered Mystic Station powerplant with the Mystic Reliability Wind Link.
According to a new poll conducted by the MassINC Polling Group, a wide majority of Greater Boston residents wants to see offshore wind power — rather than power generated from fossil fuels — replace the retiring Mystic Generating Station in Everett.
