The New England for Offshore Wind Coalition: The Policies (and Politics) Driving the New England States to Achieve the Potential of Responsibly-developed Offshore Wind.

 The Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) is the founding leader of the New England for Offshore Wind Coalition (NE4OSW).  This coalition advocates for the six New England states to significantly raise their offshore wind procurement commitments, and significantly deepen their regional collaboration.  NE4OSW members are committed to supporting offshore wind’s role in achieving our climate goals and unlocking the astounding economic development potential of this resource.  Join Susannah for a timely, candid discussion about the state of offshore wind in New England and the advocacy strategies underway to harness this resource in an environmentally and socially responsible way.

Susannah joined ELM in January 2020. Her primary focus of her work is to grow and support our growing and diverse coalition, New England for Offshore Wind. She also supports the Global Warming Solutions Project, a network of Massachusetts environmental organizations dedicated to keeping the Commonwealth accountable to its climate goals.  Prior to joining the ELM team, Susannah worked in volunteer management at the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC), a regional conservation and recreation organization. In addition to her volunteer management responsibilities, she served on AMC’s Board of Directors strategic visioning committee, and led and facilitated its community engagement and analysis. Susannah's passion for clean energy and environmental policy stems from her interest in sustainability and climate policy, and she is delighted to bring her experience in capacity building and community engagement to ELM in support of its goals to expand New England commitments to offshore wind.
