Offshore Wind in NY: What's Next?

This panel brings together industry leaders, advocates, policy makers and project opponents to examine leading edge developments and prospects for the northeast.

At the same time, federal energy policy has veered sharply toward fossil fuels and the challenge of siting offshore wind farms in light of concerns raised by the Atlantic coast fishing industry and localities that rely on it cannot not be ignored.
