Friday, October 23, 2020. 2:00 PM. Webinar: The Costs and Benefits of Offshore Wind Transmission Options. Peter Shattuck, Anbaric; Johannes Pfeifenberger and Walter Graf, The Brattle Group; Val Stori, CESA. Sponsored by CESA. More information here.
Developing offshore transmission and grid interconnections is vital for achieving the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states’ offshore wind goals. Two recent studies by The Brattle Group find that by using a planned, shared transmission network, there will be significant benefits to the region including reduced environmental impacts, reduced costs, and reductions in risks that could hinder offshore wind development. In this webinar, hosted by the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA), panelists will discuss the two studies–one on New York and the other on New England–and the benefits of coordinated transmission. The Brattle Group will also explain important differences between the two regions and the common findings from both studies.
