The global offshore wind market is on target to set an annual deployment record in 2015. In the U.S, offshore could total as much as 22GW by 2030. According to the U.S. Department of Energy trends indicate technology advances and supply chain maturity will help the industry to grow and reduce costs.
With the growth of the U.S. Offshore industry, we are currently looking for sponsors for our upcoming webcast series produced in partnership with GWEC, the Global Wind Energy Council. This webcast will focus on what it is going to take to create a sustainable offshore industry in the U.S. (research, funding, infrastructure, manufacturing and jobs).
