In this episode we explore public sentiment about offshore wind farms and the importance of community engagement in shaping it. My guest is Dr. Jeremy Firestone, Director of the Center for Carbon-Free Power Integration and Professor of Marine Policy at the University of Delaware. His research on public sentiment about the Block Island Wind Farm in Rhode Island serves as the basis for our conversation.


This is the first of two interviews I recorded at the 2018 International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum, or IPF, hosted by the Business Network for Offshore Wind earlier this month in Princeton, New Jersey.

Recorded: April 5, 2018.
