"Novel threats such as climate change require innovative solutions. Harnessing wind energy on Lake Erie not only benefits the climate by reducing our dependency on harmful greenhouse gases, but it pushes us to address new challenges in design, building, and infrastructure. That knowledge can then be applied in other areas of our region and the globe, as well as serve as the basis for further research and improvements to our world. At the same time, research and energy are also major drivers of economic stability and growth, helping to produce a more resilient and sustainable Northeast Ohio and beyond."
