Atlantic Coast Offshore Wind Trumps Oil and Gas

Fiorentina, thanks so much for your comment. According to this report, the waters off the coast of Maine and New Hampshire are too deep to make offshore wind power economical. The extra cost associated with installing deep-water offshore turbines in these areas makes it more economical to focus on the rest of the eastern seaboard and leave Maine and NH out. Since it was a U.S. report, it didn't mention the Canadian Provinces so I'd be interested in hearing more about that potential.

Is There a Need for Energy Managers?

Ray-neff, thanks so much for your comment. I don't know if the Niagara County Community College has reached out to the local utility but that certainly seems like a good place to go. I'll pass on your comments. I, too, have benefited from the weatherization program from my local utility, PSNH.

Wanted: GOLD for Smart Grid

Nice post, Lisa. I'm working on a story about university programs in renewable energy. Are utilities looking for straight engineers or are there specialized skills that GOLD kids need? If there are specialized skills, what are they and where can they go to get them?
