Please join us for the EBC 4th Annual New Hampshire Offshore Wind Conference.  This year, our program will feature presentations and remarks by federal and state agency officials, offshore wind developers and the New Hampshire Commission to Study Offshore Wind and Port Development. All parties seek to ensure that the consideration of offshore wind development is conducted in a respectful, open, transparent, and collaborative process.

Participants will learn about New Hampshire’s offshore wind and port development activity; BOEM’s efforts to significantly increase offshore wind generation nationally; the Offshore Wind Task Force process for the Gulf of Maine, including the RFI for commercial leasing and the RFCI for Maine’s research application; and BOEM’s efforts to develop a fisheries mitigation strategy.  We also look forward to an update from NREL on the growth floating offshore wind technology; updates from senior leadership in Massachusetts and Maine; and a presentation on South Fork Wind, which is the first offshore wind project in New York.

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
