Pizza & Prof: "The Promise of Offshore Wind Energy"

Date: 
Tue, 11/22/2011 - 5:45pm to 7:00pm
Event Description: 

The need for new energy sources in the U.S. and abroad is driven by a variety of factors, including global climate change, diminishing energy reserves, and concerns about energy security. Renewable energy sources are massive in scale, but currently make up a small fraction of energy generation in the U.S. In this talk, professor Matthew Lackner from the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department will analyze one promising technology: offshore wind energy. He will discuss the motivation for offshore wind, technology trends, and major challenges.
