The state of Oregon’s House Bill 2021 requires that greenhouse gas emissions associated with electricity sold to Oregon consumers decrease to 100% below baseline levels by 2040 and Oregon House Bill 3375 announced Oregon’s goal of achieving 3GW of offshore wind by 2030.
In this episode of Sustainable Outlook, host Elizabeth Crouse is joined by Alana Duerr, Director of U.S. Projects with Simply Blue Group, an early-stage developer of sustainable floating wind projects. With a PhD in Ocean Engineering and a long career in the offshore wind industry, Alana is uniquely positioned to evaluate the opportunities for offshore wind in Oregon.
In this episode, she discusses why floating is so revolutionary, how offshore wind can be a game-changer for Oregon industry and citizens, and why she considers developers the “connective tissue” of the offshore wind market. In addition, Alana makes an exciting announcement about Simply Blue Group’s activities in Oregon.
