The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Wind Powering America Program plans to host a series of public events to exchange information on the development of offshore wind energy in the U.S. The DOE will host two seminars entitled ‘Creating an Offshore Wind Industry in the United States: A National Vision and Call to Action.’
The DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Wind and Water Power Program will outline the vision it has developed to guide the U.S. in creation of a leading offshore wind industry, focusing on ways in which the various interested sectors (academia, industry, state and local governments, and the U.S. public at large) can harmonize efforts to address barriers to deployment.
The first seminar will be held during the Great Lakes Wind Collaborative's third annual meeting on Sept. 21 in Cleveland. The second seminar will be held on Sept. 28 in Washington, D.C., at a location to be determined.
