OSW Webinar: Building the U.S. Offshore Wind Supply Chain SESSION #1

December 1, 2010

9:30am — 11:00am Eastern

The U.S. Offshore Wind Collaborative and Clean Energy States Alliance hosted the first of a three-part series of webinars for state energy and environmental officials on Building the U.S. Offshore Wind Supply Chain, on Wednesday, December 1, 2010, 9:30-11 a.m. ET.

For coastal and Great Lakes states working to help launch the U.S. offshore wind energy industry, the offshore wind supply chain represents an important opportunity to stimulate state and regional economic development. As states individually and regionally begin to consider their capacities to establish the complex infrastructure necessary to implement their offshore wind development strategies, there is much to be learned by looking at the experience of the world-leading UK offshore wind market.

The first webinar in this series explained the components of the supply chain and lessons learned through the first two rounds of offshore wind development in the UK, providing participants with a comprehensive overview of the UK experience in offshore wind industry supply chain development. The session provided a roadmap of the offshore wind supply chain from turbines to vessels; successes and challenges in the UK to date, and current constraints and strategies moving forward.
