See How We Plan on Keeping Our Attendees Safe



Co-hosted with Offshore Wind California, this is the 2022 offshore wind development summit perfectly timed to help you prepare for what will likely become one of the largest floating offshore wind deployments in the world!

Offshore wind is coming to the U.S. West Coast. Federal lease auctions are expected by fall of 2022, with the first round supporting some 4.6 gigawatts (GW) of power – and that’s just off California. West Coast states are getting on track to establish a sustainable floating wind industry that will generate jobs and economic development for decades. California, with its landmark AB 525 legislation, is setting a path towards integrating 10 GW or more of offshore wind in its climate and clean-power strategy. Oregon, Washington and Hawaii are working to add offshore wind to their clean-power portfolios. These West Coast opportunities hold tremendous promise, but they also require different technologies, supply chains, and construction methods than fixed-bottom projects on the Atlantic Coast.

Key questions will be addressed at this must-attend conference for those participating in this West-Coast industry:

  • How will Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM) lease auctions play out in 2022? Can streamlining siting and permitting accelerate deployments?
  • How much offshore wind is needed for California’s 100% renewable-energy and carbon-reduction goals? What about offshore power needs of other West Coast states?
  • Can current transmission, interconnection, and power-procurement challenges be addressed economically and in time for this new offshore wind industry?
  • What are the best ways to engage stakeholders, including environmentalists, labor, commercial fishers, and indigenous peoples to ensure their interests are fully considered?
  • What infrastructure and workforce initiatives can support local manufacturing, supply-chain expansion, port upgrades, and training programs to prepare workers for these new jobs?

Get answers to these questions and more March 28-30, 2022 in San Francisco when Offshore Wind California (OWC) and Infocast bring together industry players, senior government officials, and other stakeholders to discuss these issues. Join us at the Pacific Offshore Wind Summit to get the latest on siting, permitting and environmental issues; explore floating wind technology advances; and better understand the road map for development.

Summit proceedings kick-off March 28 with an Executive Briefing on Planning and Preparation for California Lease Auctions, where attendees will meet policymakers, regulators, stakeholders, and gain in-depth knowledge in this new clean-power market. We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco! Register now!
