Cape Wind gets federal okay

Cape Wind projectAfter nine years of regulatory review, the 130-turbine “Cape Wind” wind farm off Cape Cod has been given federal approval to proceed as this nation’s first such offshore project.  College of Engineering Professor Michael Caramanis, an authority on the emerging cyber-physical-energy-system/Smart Grid, says it is great news for a sustainable energy and environment future in the U.S. and the world.

“Meanwhile, research at BU College of Engineering will continue to investigate the ample opportunities that the smart grid will make available for mitigating the intermittent nature of wind generation.”
