Alaska’s Wind, Wave, & Tidal Resources Could Help State Meet Future Energy Needs

Offshore wind makes sense for decarbonizing energy production and building energy security and independence when it comes to ocean renewable energy production in Alaska’s Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), according to an analysis by researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Their new report, “Feasibility Study for Renewable Energy Technologies … [continued]
