OWAP Webinar: Maine Offshore Wind Milestones

March 6, 2014

Please join us for an update on the milestones the University of Maine’s pilot-scale and demonstration offshore wind projects have achieved in the last few months and the University’s next steps as it works on securing power purchase agreements and awaits a funding decision from the U.S. Department of Energy for its demonstration project off of Monhegan Island. Guest speakers are Jeff Thaler and Habib Dagher from the University of Maine.

OWAP Webinar: Offshore Wind – Lessons from Europe

OWAP Webinar: Understanding Regional Offshore Wind Supply Chain Opportunities

March 19, 2013

CESA’s Offshore Wind Accelerator Project (OWAP) and the Global Wind Network (GLWN) hosted this webinar to outline the DOE/GLWN Offshore Supply Chain project and explain how coastal regions can participate in the development and implementation of this emerging energy industry.

OWAP Webinar: Learning Investment in Offshore Wind: An Economic Analysis

March 11, 2013

Join OWAP for a 60-minute webinar briefing on the major findings from this new analysis, undertaken by the Brattle Group. The analysis finds that, based on reasonable assumptions of technology learning rates, offshore wind energy can reach grid parity with fossil fuel generation before 2030.

OWAP Webinar: Right Whales and Offshore Wind – A Case Study for Collaboration

March 1, 2013

Join CESA’s Offshore Wind Accelerator Project (OWAP) and the National Wildlife Federation for a webinar that will examine the scientific underpinnings of North Atlantic right whale conservation; identify how this challenge might impact offshore wind development; and describe the details and impact of recently agreed-upon conservation measures that present a solution.
