Overview

Offshore wind is poised to play a key role in achieving a clean future for the Southeast. With several Southeastern states establishing ambitious climate goals, it’s clear that our region must pursue every viable avenue to generate clean power at the scale needed. And given its established success elsewhere in the world, its growing momentum elsewhere in the country, and our conducive coastline, offshore wind can be a vital way to grow our economy while protecting the environment.

But what are offshore wind’s fundamental economics, and what could its responsible development in the Southeast mean for our economy and workforce?

Please join E2, the Southeastern Wind Coalition, and a panel of speakers from across the private, public, and non-profit sectors for an in-depth discussion of this new frontier in American renewable energy, including an overview of the recently released North Carolina Offshore Wind Cost-Benefit Analysis, which explores the benefits of offshore wind for our region by evaluating the net economic impacts to North Carolina from a theoretical 2.8GW offshore wind project.
