Meet regulators and major developers to understand the opportunities in project implementation within the growing North American Offshore Wind market
Offshore Wind Implementation 2018 will bring state and federal regulators and policymakers together with leading offshore wind leaseholders and developers to explore the paths to offshore wind project implementation. Key industry leaders including executives from Deepwater Wind and Ørsted, will discuss the thorniest challenges these projects face, from interconnection and integration with onshore energy markets to developing sufficient local content to meet state requirements without jeopardizing project cost and schedule. Finally, the conference will explore how to ensure that bankable projects emerge from this process by fully taking advantage of state and federal tax benefit and incentive programs, and meet the likely criteria to obtain both debt and equity financing.
Attend Offshore Wind Implementation 2018 and connect directly with regulators, policymakers and developers. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to engage in meaningful one-on-one conversations and build strategic partnerships.
