Cleantech Corridor and The Sallan Foundation Atlantic Wind: What are our prospects for offshore wind energy?


Monday May 21, 2012 at 5:30PM


At NYIT Auditorium on Broadway at 1871 Broadway  (61st St.-- 62nd St.)

Registration/networking 5:30PM--6PM

Panel Discussion (and Q&A) 6:00PM-7:30PM

Networking Reception 7:30PM-8:30PM


Wind Energy Update: Google has pledged $5 billion for an ambitious offshore wind energy plan to deliver renewable power to the Middle Atlantic States and the Atlantic coast is estimated to have a wind energy capacity of 100,000MW, equivalent to many Indian Point nuclear power plants.   Now, Governor Cuomo is calling for Indian Point to be shut down and New York State will need to replace it.  Atlantic Wind presents the potential for tapping into this huge energy resource.  But the fact is that we are living through a flood of cheap natural gas giving energy developers pause. What lies ahead?

Is the Atlantic Wind Connection in our future or is wind in trouble?  Are the prospects for onshore wind any better?   What are the prospects for renewable energy to be major job-creating enterprise for our region.

Come join, participate and listen to our expert panel.
