NECEC Presents Emerging Trends Series: Offshore Wind
May 11 | 8:30-11:00am
Foley Hoag LLP 155 Seaport Blvd Boston , MA

Struggling to stay up to date with Offshore Wind? After decades of speculation about offshore wind’s future in the United States, the industry that has long powered grids in Europe has finally arrived in the Northeast. In the last year, America’s first offshore wind project off of Block Island, RI, started spinning and delivering power to the grid. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker signed into law a bill authorizing the procurement of 1,600 megawatts of offshore wind, and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo committed to 2,400 megawatts of offshore wind off the coast of New York by 2030. Meanwhile, major utilities have announced agreements with developers to purchase energy generated from the projects planned for the eastern seaboard.

Join NECEC, a premier voice of businesses building a world-class clean energy hub in the Northeast, and Foley Hoag’s Energy and Cleantech practice for a not-to-be-missed discussion with offshore wind developers, leading public officials, investors and experts at the cutting edge of the Northeast’s emerging offshore wind market.

Speakers located in Boston will include:

Lars Thaaning Pederson, Co CEO, Copenhagen Offshore Partners
Thomas Brostrøm, General Manager North America, Wind Power, DONG Energy
Stepen Pike, CEO, Massachusetts Clean Energy Center
Alicia Barton, Counsel, Foley Hoag (moderator)
