Webinar 1 USA: Offshore Wind in New England and the Netherlands: Building Partnerships for International Business REGISTRATION CLOSED

Aanvangsdatum: 04-Mar-2021
Capaciteit: (87% geboekt)



The U.S. offshore wind market is building momentum based on strong interest and commitments from Northeast and Mid-Atlantic StatesThis has resulted in a project pipeline which may result in nearly 30GW installed capacity by 2035. To build out these systems, the U.S. supply chain will require the successful collaboration between the offshore wind industry, labor, environmental stakeholders, existing companies, new market participants, government, and other institutions. The Dutch sector can help meet the needs and support the growth of the U.S. offshore wind market by sharing experience, engaging in collaborations, and transfering innovative technology and industry practices.

As facilitators of this programming initiative, Holland Home of Wind Energy (HHWE) and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) have organized a series of Webinars in the upcoming months, where experts and stakeholders can inform each other, share insights, and promote an exchange of information and ideas on a variety of offshore wind topics. Connections made in these sessions can help identify potential for future opportunities for cooperation and engagement.

This series of Webinars consists of: 
  • - Webinar 1: Offshore Wind in New England and the Netherlands: Building Partnerships for International Business - March 4, 2021 (see agenda and registration below)
  • - Webinar 2: Offshore Wind Ports and Vessels: Opportunities for U.S. - Netherlands cooperation - April 1, 2021 (see more information and registration here)
