Carney's campaign site states he "was instrumental in making Delaware the first state to approve an offshore wind power project". The wind farm created off the coast of Delaware is what Carney calls the Bluewater Wind Project. 
Carney is against off shore drilling along Delaware’s coast, as evidenced by this article. Carney is relieved that President Obama issued a “six-month moratorium on new deepwater oil drilling permits” but says he “won’t rest” until there is no opportunity for deepwater oil drilling permits ever again.

On Earth Day this year, Carney advocated for alternative energy, urging listeners to “choose innovation and focus on the path toward energy independence”. He considers Delaware a leader in the quest for a green tomorrow, and says proposed Delaware offshore drilling “is a step backwards” for the state.

Carney supports innovation, especially scientific innovation. He states "sustained job and wage growth depends on supporting the creation of new ideas and other forms of innovation." Among other things, Carney proposes to "build research capacity at Delaware's Institutions of High Learning," "Expand the Delaware Biotechnology Institute," and "develop additional centers of scientific research and technology."

Carney is committed to reducing cancer rates in Delaware by using a “three-pronged” approach. First, he is committed to funding a “statewide body burden study”, second, Castle wants to implement the reformatted clinical trials described in the Institute of Medicine’s 2010 report, and finally, Castle plans to fund an expansion of the Center for Translational Research in Delaware.
