Rising to the Challenge: Assessing the Massachusetts Response to Climate Change

Source/Sponsor: 
MassINC
Creator/Author: 
MassINC; Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA)
Description: 

The report states that although Massachusetts has implemented many effective and indeed nation-leading programs, there is a real likelihood that the state will fall short of its 2020 greenhouse gas reduction (GHG) goal-- a 25% reduction from 1990 levels. It calls for additional action, including launching stalled initiatives within the Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020; adding measurement and coordination where little exists; and appointing a cabinet-level climate administrator to manage all aspects of the cross-agency program.

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.
