BOSTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry is planning to discuss the global threat of climate change after touring a Boston wind technology testing center with his British counterpart, Philip Hammond.

Kerry also plans to deliver remarks Thursday on the importance of investing in renewable energy sources.

The Wind Technology Testing Center on the city’s waterfront is the first facility in the country capable of testing large-scale wind turbine blades up to 90 meters in length.

The facility acts as independent certifier of wind blade designs, with the goal of helping the industry bring down the costs of wind blade technologies.

Massachusetts is also home to what could be the nation’s first large scale offshore wind farm. The Cape Wind project is a planned 130-turbine facility off the coast of Cape Cod.
