OWAP Webinar: Wind Farm Siting and Maritime Traffic – Challenges and Opportunities

July 11, 2012

Clean Energy States Alliance is hosting a webinar for its Offshore Wind Accelerator Project (OWAP) on offshore wind siting issues.

OWAP Webinar: DOI-BOEM Discussion on OSW Public Liaison Coordination

May 22, 2012

This webinar will feature a discussion with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and the Department of Interior regarding their approach to providing effective public liaison and coordination on issues related to offshore wind energy.

OWAP Webinar: Marine Spatial Planning

April 17, 2012

This webinar features a presentation by Crow White (of the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at UC Santa Barbara), one of the authors and principle investigators of a new report on the value of marine spatial planning for renewable energy, will provide a briefing on the report’s findings. The report uses multiple ocean use tradeoff analysis to quantify the value of the use of the MSP framework for siting offshore wind in Massachusetts.

OSW Webinar: Innovative Approaches for Financing US Offshore Wind Energy

December 6, 2011

This webinar, presented by CEG/CESA’s Offshore Wind Accelerator Project (OWAP), examines some of the innovative approaches that could be used to advance financing early U.S. offshore wind projects. The webinar looks beyond the immediate challenges of extending the federal production and investment tax credits to explore additional approaches and tools to finance offshore wind projects of scale.

OSW Webinar: The Role and Needs of Private Investors in Offshore Wind Finance

September 14, 2011

This webinar will examine the financing issue from the perspective of private investors. Who could invest? What will it take to make them invest? How to address financing and technology risks? What role does the investment community believe that state and federal government policy should play?

OSW Webinar: The Role of States and Public Support Mechanisms in Supporting Offshore Wind Financing

August 9, 2011

This webinar examines some of the key strategies, efforts, and policy tools being used by states to support offshore wind financing and deployment. The webinar will begin to identify what are the characteristics of an effective approach by states to create demand, encourage power purchase agreements, employ public procurement, and use public funding to support offshore wind development and related supply chain investment.

OSW Webinar: The Financing Challenges Facing the US Offshore Wind Market

July 13, 2011

This kick-off webinar will examine the US DOE national offshore wind strategy deployment objectives, its implications for the total investment required to develop this amount of generation, and the specific financing gaps and challenges.
