TIE and Greentown Labs will be hosting a panel on offshore wind on March 29 from 5:30-8:30 PM.
This week, TIE connected with the Greentown Labs liaison, Benny Kim, for details on the newest Tufts partnership and the event that will bring the two organizations together for an evening centered on upcoming innovations to the Massachusetts energy sector.
Since the signing of the MOU in September, Greentown Labs and Tufts have mutually invested in various initiatives to foster the partnership, to include connecting university groups and students to Greentown Labs through various events such as the Tufts Career Fair, the Greentown Internship Fair, and the Tufts Energy Conference (TEC). The two entities are additionally invested in assisting each other in research and development; Tufts 180 Degrees will be conducting two projects for Greentown on the community and service of the Boston area and Tufts’ Gordon Institute MSIM students will be taking on three market research and development projects for Greentown and two member companies.
The event on March 29th “Are We Ready to Embrace a Future Powered by Offshore Wind?” offers further opportunity for the partners to collaborate. This event, responding to the 2016 Act to Promote Energy Diversity, signed in by Massachusetts Governor Baker, will allow corporate leaders and industry experts to come together for a discussion on the future of wind energy and the necessary steps for success in the implementation of offshore wind turbines. This event will feature a panel of industry experts from agencies including Orsted, Autonomous Marine System, and MassCEC, and will include Tufts Professors of Practice Eric Hines and Barbara Kates-Garnick. Following a lively discussion, after the panel there will be a poster session and networking opportunity for all attendees. In partnership, Tufts University and Greentown Labs invite all interested staff and students to attend what promises to be an exciting and invigorating event!
