Bloomberg Energy Briefing – Diverse Coalition Supports Biden Offshore Wind Expansion Plans: “A broad coalition of national nonprofits, labor unions, developers, and environmental justice organizations released a “unity statement” …praising the administration’s recent announcement to significantly expand offshore wind leasing and investment.” WASHINGTON—Last week, a broad coalition of business, community, environmental, and labor groups issued […]

Off the coast of New Jersey these days, surveillance vessels hired by European energy companies are taking measurements of the ocean depths, and underwater research drones are analyzing water temperatures to accumulate data on the Mid-Atlantic “Cold Pool.” Onshore in places like the Port of Paulsboro along the Delaware River south of Camden and Philadelphia, […]

The Biden administration is betting that green energy produced by new offshore wind farms will help slow climate change, but fishers and some scientists say there are too many uncertainties about how the massive structures will affect the ocean and its marine life. The first big test of how the push for wind energy might […]
