Coastal Energy and Climate Change

Description: 

Virginia features over 3,300 miles of coastline and many low lying urban and industrial centers that are subject to flooding and erosion. Global-warming-induced sea level rise and more extreme tropical storms and hurricanes are likely to have increasingly severe impacts. Nearly 4,000 MW of new offshore wind capacity can be located beyond the usual horizon (12 nautical miles offshore) off Virginia Beach that could result in significant CO2 emission reductions.

Bright Ideas for Delaware's Energy Future

Source/Sponsor: 
Governor Ruth Ann Minner
Creator/Author: 
Delaware Energy Task Force
Description: 

The report recommended nine strategies to meet the goals and objectives of Executive Order 31 in addressing Delaware's short-term and long-term energy challenges. Delaware's offshore wind potential is estimated at 6,000-15,000 MW within a 300 square mile area. Included in the recommendations is the establishment of a voluntary renewable energy portfolio standard (RPS).

Creator/Author: 
Summit Blue Consulting, LLC
Description: 

The report offers an asssessment of New Jersey's renewable energy market and provides recommendations for the future direction of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities' (BPU) clean energy programs. The report recommends establishing incentives for offshore wind at $2,745/kW on a capacity basis, or $50.25/MWh on a performance basis. The technical potential of offshore wind is estimated to be 2,500 MW by 2020, and its economic potential is 2,250 MW by 2020. Offshore wind is rated as New Jersey's second largest potential renewable energy resource, after solar.

Central Electric Power Cooperative (CEPCI)
Creator/Author: 
GDS Associates; La Capra Associates
Description: 

The report estimates the range of the levelized cost of electricity for offshore wind energy to be between $120-155 per MWh. The technical and practical potential of offshore wind was not estimated because "available technologies have not achieved maturity or permitting issues introduce uncertainties."
