Preparing For A US Offshore Wind Boom

Tuesday, Jan 24, 2012

The recent approval by FERC of the Big Atlantic backbone transmission project and the announcement by the DOE in February of $50 million in R&D offshore wind funding has had stimulated speculation about an offshore wind boom. While many are feeling sanguine, the harshness, remoteness and large-scale nature of the offshore wind project environment make it a market that has little room for error. Echoing this duality a November 2010 report that offshore wind would continue to see primarily subsidy-led growth into the next decade and only in countries with “aggressive alternative energy targets and the capacity to incur large subsidies”.

In this meeting, we examine the remaining roadblocks to transforming the United States’ status as a rank outsider in the offshore wind race. In particular, our speakers will delve into economic and energy policy moves that will encourage innovative financing for the removal of technological and expertise bottlenecks, smooth over legislative quandaries and increase stakeholder acceptability.

Speakers: Stephanie McClellan - Offshore Wind Consultant, Former Offshore Wind Adviser for the State of Delaware; Ross Tyler - Executive Director UNEP Sustainable Finance Alliance; Tim Ryan - President, Offshore Wind, Apex Wind; Laura Morton - Department of Energy , Deputy Chief of Staff, Clean Energy Group; Kevin Banister - Vice President of Business and Government Affairs, Principle Power; Vestas - TBA

Date: Tuesday, January 24th, 2012 9:30am- 12:30pm
