Rutgers-Newark Offshore Wind Energy Community Engagement Event
January 26 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Date & Time: Friday, January 26, 2024 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Location: Rutgers Business School, 3rd Floor Lounge, 1 Washington Park, Newark, NJ 07102
Purpose: To identify key community challenges and opportunities that will impact the direction of offshore wind in Newark and New Jersey. The topics of business development, supply chain, and workforce development will be discussed.
Background: The Biden administration has set a target of 30 gigawatts of operational offshore wind capacity by 2030 as part of larger efforts to halve US emissions by the end of the decade and achieve net zero by midcentury. According to the Department of Energy, this goal would support 77,000 jobs, generate enough electricity to power more than 10 million homes, and cut 78 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
In New Jersey, the Offshore Wind Strategic Plan is a critical blueprint that will guide us toward our goal of 7,500 megawatts of offshore wind power by 2035 and help us achieve 100 percent clean energy by 2050.
