June 28, 2023
On June 8, 2023, WINDExchange hosted a webinar focused on the ways offshore wind energy projects can affect the communities near where they are sited. An expert panel discussed the benefits and challenges offshore wind energy development brings to the diverse groups who share the area, like coastal communities or local businesses. Speakers included Alison Bates (assistant professor of Environmental Studies at Colby College), Jacob Miller (tribal liaison for Vineyard Offshore), and Benjamin Gallinelli (vice president of the Southern New Jersey Development Council).
