Bloomberg Green – The Biden administration is outlining ambitions to dramatically boost offshore wind power in the U.S. by 2030, pushing to drive construction of projects at sea capable of generating enough electricity for more than 10 million American homes.
Wind is one of the planet’s most efficient renewable power sources and offshore winds tend to blow harder and more uniformly than on land. Yesterday, the New York State Energy and Development Authority (NYSERDA) selected Equinor and incoming strategic partners bp to transform two of New York’s ports into large-scale offshore wind working facilities in hopes of positioning New York as an offshore wind industry hub.
I spent the first half of my life on the East Coast and the second half on the West Coast…. from Manhattan to Manhattan Beach.
In 2020 I launched Impact Capital Partners to make a difference in my own way – by creating a platform to facilitate the flow of capital from institutional investors to “impact investments.”
Through Impact Capital Partners, I hope to make it easier for institutional investors to find and invest in impact investments, because I believe that as larger dollar amounts seek investments with market-rate returns AND positive social impact, we will have a better chance of solving the world’s toughest problems!

Investment assets dwarf philanthropy and aid, so the simple message is that if we can align our investments with our beliefs, we can have an impact on the world… and, thus the term… “Impact Investing.”
