U.S. Offshore Wind Energy: Present and Future

Tuesday, February 11   ·   1:00PM - 2:30PM

An American offshore wind industry is beginning to take shape along the Atlantic Coast. Crucial projects will set a precedent for how the industry progresses, and deploys more capacity to harness the abundant wind resources off of U.S. shores. A robust offshore wind industry would drive job-creation across many sectors—including manufacturing, operations and maintenance—and in our ports, while providing greenhouse gas emissions-free power.

This panel will provide an up-to-date assessment of recent offshore wind project developments, new studies in regional job growth potential, and a state-of-play on how policies can drive the offshore wind industry to its fullest potential.
