Technical Assessment of Onshore and Offshore Wind Generation Potential in New England

Source/Sponsor: 
Independent System Operator-New England (ISO-NE)
Creator/Author: 
Levitan & Associates, Inc. (LAI)
Description: 

The study estimated New England's maximum theoretical wind generation potential as approximately 94,000 MW, of which 34,000 MW was from offshore resources. For offshore sites, the effective Forward Capacity Marketing (FCM) capacity rating was 26% for summer and 46% for winter.

Description: 

The study examined a variety of factors - including technological, environmental, regulatory, and economic considerations - associated with potential sites off the coast of Georgia. The study identified Jekyll Island and Tybee Island as two locations with the best potential. Of the two locations, Tybee Island was deemed to be better suited because of reduced visual disturbance, improved wind resources, and closer proximity to industrial and maintenance resources.

Creator/Author: 
Governor's Task Force on Wind Power Development
Description: 

After a detailed review of Maineメs wind resource, regional and projected markets for clean power, technology trends, and Maineメs greenhouse gas (GHG) emission goals and policy commitments, the Task Force concludes that Maine should seek to host at least 2,000 MW of installed wind power capacity by 2015, and at least 3,000 MW by 2020. At least 300 MW of the 2020 goal could be achieved with projects built offshore.

Report of the Governor's Scientific Advisory Panel on Offshore Energy

Source/Sponsor: 
Governor Beverly Perdue
Creator/Author: 
Governor's Scientific Advisory Panel on Offshore Energy
Description: 

The report found that substantial areas of at least 506 federal lease blocks have a wind-capacity factor of commercially attractive
(>30 percent) to outstanding (>40 percent) in which no serious conflicts with wildlife, existing human uses, or natural factors that would inhibit successful installment of wind turbines have been identified. These could accomodate as much as 50,000 MW of nameplate capacity, generating a yearly average of 20,000 MW of power.
