Wind/V2G Publications

Bates, A., Samoteskul, K., Callahan, J., Corbett, J., Kempton, W., Madsen, J., Shriver, G., Dvorak, M., Kenney, R., McCormack, R., Harris, K. Noel, L., and Firestone, J. (2012). Delaware Marine Spatial Planning: Offshore Wind Context. Final Report. Center for Carbon-free Power Integration. (The report identifies existing ocean uses, highlights areas where conflicts with offshore wind development are likely to occur off the coast Delaware.)

From 2010 to mid-2011, CCPI researchers published ten papers related to offshore wind or V2G. Six papers were published in peer review journals, including in Land Economics, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Energies, Energy for Sustainable Development, Transportation Research Part C, Journal of Resource, Energy and Environmental Economics, and PNAS, two book chapters, and two papers in peer-reviewed conference proceedings. Many of these WIND and V2G publications as well as earlier publications can be downloaded directly by going to the relevant publication webpage.
