DOE to hold offshore wind seminarsNews // September 24, 2010
The US Department of Energy's (DOE) Wind Powering America Programme plans to host a series of public events to exchange information on the development of offshore wind energy in the US.
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 Programme will outline the vision it has developed to guide the US in creation of an offshore wind industry, focusing on ways in which the various interested sectors (academia, industry, state and local governments, and the US 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 September 21st in Cleveland. The second seminar will be held on September 28th in Washington DC, at a location to be determined.
