Webinar (5/25): Transmission Alternatives for California North Coast Offshore Wind

Join us on Wednesday, May 25 from 1-3 pm Pacific for a webinar on our latest feasibility study for offshore wind development in the Humboldt Wind Energy Area. This transmission-focused study analyzes how much power could be generated on the north coast by offshore wind while remaining within the bounds of the existing regional infrastructure, and describes the corresponding economics.

This research was led by the Schatz Center in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Quanta Technology, LLC, and is supported by funding from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management. Presenters and panelists will include Arne Jacobson and James Zoellick (Schatz Center), Ali Daneshpooy (Quanta Technology), Aubryn Cooperman (National Renewable Energy Lab), and David Erne (California Energy Commission).


  • 1:00-1:15 pm — Welcome and overview of the Humboldt Wind Energy Area
  • 1:15-2:00 pm — Presentation of findings
  • 2:00-2:45 pm — Panel discussion and Q&A
