Offshore Wind Accelerator Project (OWAP) - Webinars & Events
NYSERDA’s Offshore Wind Program is developing offshore wind in the most responsible and cost-effective way possible and bringing clean, locally produced power where the burdens of climate change are highest.
Learn about the Offshore Wind R&D Consortium, a jointly funded US DOE and NYSERDA R&D partnership whose membership includes major project developers, technical consultants, national labs, and four states to accelerate the development and innovation of the US offshore wind industry by removing or reducing technological and supply chain barriers.
Wilfried Breuer, Managing Director at TenneT, discussed Germany’s offshore transmission experience. Mark Kalpin, Partner at Holland & Knight LLP, discussed potential ownership structures & mechanisms for developing OSW transmission in the US, mechanisms for cost recovery, risk management, and the RTO interconnection process.
This webinar highlighted two winning programs from CESA’s 2018 State Leadership in Clean Energy Awards: Massachusetts’ Advancing Commonwealth Energy Storage (ACES) Program, and Rhode Island’s Block Island Offshore Wind Farm.
A new study by Berkeley Lab finds that the market value of offshore wind varies significantly along the U.S. East Coast, depending on the time-varying wind resource profile at a given site, as well as local pricing and market rules within the regional power market.
A new report quantifies the job impacts of offshore wind development off the U.S. Northeast from Maine to Maryland. In this webinar, report author Alun Roberts from BVG Associates discussed the study’s methodology and detailed findings.
In this webinar, representatives from a multi-state collaborative will discuss their new report on opportunities and barriers shaping the Northeast offshore wind market, and the model they used to develop two regional deployment trajectories for offshore wind generation by 2030.
In this webinar, Renewable Energy World chief editor Jennifer Runyon highlighted some of the new commercial opportunities for the O&G sector, including shipbuilding, substructures, and a strong national supply-chain and workforce. Brian Cheater from GustoMSC discussed the vessel study commissioned by the Northeast Multi-State Offshore Wind group.
In this webinar, panelists discussed the West Coast Regional Planning Body’s efforts to prepare a marine spatial plan to guide offshore renewable energy development in the region.
This webinar, hosted by Clean Energy Group for the Northeast Wind Resource Center, highlights the Northeast Ocean Plan and Rhode Island’s Ocean Special Area Management Plan and the public processes leading to comprehensive ocean management regulations that protect ocean resources and activities.
This webinar, presented by the Northeast Wind Resource Center (NWRC), features a discussion on the standards and skills needed to prepare US workers to meet the needs of the emerging offshore wind industry. Panelists include Earl Walker of Siemens Energy, and Megan Amsler of Self-Reliance Corporation/ North Atlantic Offshore Training and Development Center.
