New England for Offshore Wind (NE4OSW) is a collaborative, broad-based coalition that includes partners from a diverse array of organizations and communities across New England. We are committed to combatting climate change by increasing the supply of clean energy to our regional grid through more procurements of responsibly developed offshore wind. We believe that responsibly developed offshore wind is the single biggest lever we can pull to address the climate crisis while also strengthening our regional economy, protecting ratepayers, creating high quality jobs, and improving public health by reducing pollution. A transition to a clean energy economy through offshore wind must be done in an equitable way. Our coalition aims to drive New England governors and legislatures to support regional collaboration and make commitments by 2022 to power 1/3 of our region with offshore wind.
- Respect & Responsibility: We drive policy that ensures the responsible development of offshore wind that brings all stakeholders to the table to ensure people, the environment, and wildlife are treated with dignity and respect.
- Science-Based Decision Making: We work to ensure the continuous advancement of science to inform the development of best practices and act in accordance with the best available data and the urgency required to mitigate the climate crisis.
- Equity: We support the development of offshore wind that benefits and is informed by the communities hardest-hit by climate change and that have been historically under-served and overburdened by energy pollution.
- Economic Justice: We support the development of a clean, thriving, and fair economy that creates high-quality, family-sustaining jobs that ensure the right to organize and opportunities for under-served communities and workers impacted by the transition to clean energy.
