Seattle- Washington ranks 11th among 29 coastal states for its potential to meet its 2050 electricity usage in a scenario of maximal electrification of buildings, transportation and industry, findings revealed in a new report released Thursday by Environment Washington Research & Policy Center and Frontier Group. The report, Offshore Wind for America, examines U.S. offshore wind potential by both coastal region and by state, while documenting the status of existing projects and technological advances. Washington could provide 105% of projected 2050 energy demand with offshore wind alone. For projections of 2050 electricity demand, the report assumes that U.S. buildings, industry and transportation will all be powered by electricity rather than fossil fuels by mid-century.
WASHINGTON -- The Environmental Protection Agency reinstated its website centered on climate science and policy on Thursday. This information was removed from the EPA website by the previous administration. This relaunch is a strong signal that the Biden administration will restore the role of science in protecting our communities and public health.
