DOE Holds Webinar and Announces Upcoming Seminars about Creating an Offshore Wind Industry in the United States
September 16, 2010
The Department of Energy (DOE) Wind Powering America Program announced today a series of public events to exchange information on the development of offshore wind energy in the United States. DOE conducted a Webinar and will host two seminars entitled Creating an Offshore Wind Industry in the United States: A National Vision and Call to Action.
In these events, the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Wind and Water Power Program will outline the vision it has developed to guide the United States in creation of a world-leading offshore wind industry, focusing on ways in which the various interested sectors (e.g. academia, industry, state and local governments, and the U.S. public at large) can harmonize their efforts to address barriers to deployment.
Webinar on September 16
A Webinar was held on Thursday, September 16 at 2 p.m. Eastern, and was recorded for online viewing. Visit the page for the September 16th Webinar for more information.
