Winds of Change: Tracking the Development of US Offshore Wind Energy
This innovative conference centers the path forward to plan, develop, and sustainably deploy offshore wind infrastructure in the United States. With offshore wind development plans rapidly emerging on the US Atlantic coast, this is a critical time to convene wind developers, government officials, NGO representatives, and other clean energy business leaders to discuss the opportunities and challenges of offshore wind in the next decade. Developers, practitioners, and scientists will help inform the audience on the practical realities of project financing, leasing, permitting, addressing potential wildlife and environmental impacts, and more.
While this event is aimed at professionals, we are making a limited number of tickets available for Duke students who are eager to learn about offshore wind energy development. Please register only if you know you can attend for a majority of the day-and please use the "student ticket" option.
The Winds of Change conference is co-hosted by Duke University's Nicholas School of the Environment; Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability; and Center for Energy, Development, and the Global Environment (EDGE) at the Fuqua School of Business. This convening supports the aims of the Duke Climate Commitment, which unites the university's education, research, operations and public service missions to address the climate crisis.
