Wainscott wind opponents double down

"We are more confident than ever before that building major electrical infrastructure through Wainscott will not satisfy New York State law as an appropriate landfall site," Gouri Edlich of the Wainscott preservation group told those attending the virtual meeting. She emphasized that there has been no independent assessment of the environmental impacts or alternatives to the project.

Offshore wind farm threatens tangier family’s conch fishing livelihood

Eskridge is concerned that wind turbine EMFs could negatively affect the conch that bury themselves in the sandy, muddy bottom of the Chesapeake Bay. ...Dominion representatives told watermen that the EMF from a cable would be comparable to that of a “toaster oven.” [T]he fishermen questioned how that comparison was determined and whether even a small EMF could negatively affect a conch. No scientific study has been done.

Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia partnering on offshore wind energy development

Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina are teaming up on an effort to kickstart wind energy and economic development off their shores. The new initiative provides a framework for the three states to "cooperatively promote, develop, and expand offshore wind energy and the accompanying industry supply chain and workforce," they said in a joint press release.

Ørsted looks to soften impact of US permitting delays with bigger turbines

Ørsted also offered an update on its U.S. projects, which have been caught up in federal permitting delays — a process the company now says is on pause. “Even assuming the permitting process starts moving within the first quarter of next year, it appears highly likely that Revolution Wind, Ocean Wind, Skipjack and Sunrise Wind will be delayed beyond the previously expected 2023 and 2024 construction years,” Poulsen said.

Vineyard Wind Secures Transmission Agreement With ISO-NE

Vineyard Wind has announced a transmission agreement with ISO New England (ISO-NE) to deliver power to the system operator’s grid when the Vineyard Wind 1 project comes online. The 800-MW offshore wind farm, located about 15 miles off the cost of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, is expected to be the first commercial-scale offshore wind farm in the U.S.

RI set to double down on offshore wind power

Gov. Gina Raimondo is looking to procure as much as 600 more megawatts of power generated by towering wind turbines that would rise up out of the ocean waters off southern New England. Her administration announced on Tuesday that National Grid, the state’s main energy utility, is working on a request for proposals from offshore wind developers that is on track to be released early next year.

Mitsubishi eyes Great Lakes for offshore wind development

Wissemann said future Great Lakes projects will look more like those shaping up along the Atlantic Coast: larger and more competitive on cost. Winter ice endemic to the Great Lakes is not an engineering challenge for turbines affixed to the seabed, and there’s no need to demonstrate any particular technology for freshwater projects to advance, he said. “I think you can go bigger, faster in the Great Lakes.”
