Northeastern states offer the best hope for the future of offshore wind power, but current policy for the renewable energy source is not working. That's according to a Breaking Energy article on its site, citing a report from the nonprofit Clean Energy Group and Navigant.
Citing a series of failed wind power initiatives at the state level, the report calls for a multi-state push that goes beyond being just "an advisory committee," and an effort that has the financial means to achieve its goals.
"Single-state solutions are likely doomed to fail. If the goal is to build a robust pipeline of projects at scale, which can begin to better meet renewable obligations and put the region on a path to no-carbon stabilization, states must act together," Breaking Energy said, quoting the report.
