US Job Creation in Offshore Wind Webinar
December 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-5| Free
Our report quantifies the job impacts of offshore wind development off the US Northeast from Maine to Maryland. Based on two market scenarios of 4GW and 8 GW by 2030, the study revealed a peak of 8300 to 16,700 full-time equivalent baseline jobs in 2028. With the addition of medium to high probability jobs, these numbers increased up to a peak of 36,300 in 2028. The baseline jobs most likely to be performed in the U.S. include project development and management, supply and installation of electrical substations and subsea cable, and wind farm operation and maintenance; whereas the medium to high probability jobs include a manufacturing sector workforce.
This one-hour webinar with report author Alun Roberts aims to help participants learn more about the study’s methodology and detailed findings. The webinar will be hosted by Val Stori, Project Director at the Clean Energy States Alliance/ Clean Energy Group.
This webinar is presented by Clean Energy Group for the Northeast Wind Resource Center.
