The Impact of Alternative Energy on Regional Economies

REMI Webinar


Guest Presenter: Dr. Robert Carey
Director of the Regional Dynamics & Economics Laboratory, Clemson University

Alternative energy is frequently discussed in terms of its environmental impacts, but it can also impact regional economies. With the current push for domestic and environmentally friendly energy production, offshore wind is beginning to emerge as a potentially viable option. Given its shallow waters that extend far from the coast as well as abundant wind resource, the state of South Carolina is one possible location for one of the first offshore wind farms in the United States. Join us for a discussion of how a demonstration-scale 40 MW offshore wind farm would impact the economy of the state of South Carolina as estimated using the REMI PI+ model. Impacts from construction as well as operations and maintenance (O&M) are included in the model.

Finally, you will have a chance to engage in Q&A after the presentation.

This presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it at no charge via the Citrix GotoWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click on one of the links in the sidebar to register online.
