Spotlight on New Jersey: The Honorable Phil Murphy
Thursday, August 20, 2020
12:15 PM – 12:20 PM
The Honorable Phil Murphy will share his outlook on the future of offshore wind in the State of New Jersey. Governor Murphy continues to be a leader in offshore wind energy policy, from the release of the Energy Master Plan, which outlines strategies for reaching 100 percent clean energy by 2050 to the state’s July announcement to develop the largest U.S. offshore wind port – the first U.S. port to act as an offshore wind staging area. Most recently, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities released a draft of its Offshore Wind Strategic Plan, which provides a roadmap to meet the state’s goal of producing 7.5 GW of offshore wind power by 2035.
