This EBC Offshore Wind Program will feature presentations and remarks by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and state officials from Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, all of whom seek to ensure that the planning and consideration of offshore wind and related port development is conducted through a respectful, open, transparent and collaborative process.
Participants will learn about the Biden Administration`s vision for the role of offshore wind in our nation`s clean energy future, BOEM`s efforts nationally and within the region to accelerate the proper planning, leasing, permitting and development process for offshore wind, and hear from state officials who will provide updates on initiatives and activities associated with offshore wind in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Please join us for this informative program.
A robust discussion with the audience will conclude this webinar.
General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (2.0 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
