Creating an Offshore Wind Industry in the United States: A National Vision and Call to Action Webinar
Posted Aug 24 2010 12:00am
2:00 p.m. Eastern Time; Duration: 1 hour (½ hour presentation, ½ hour Q&A)
In fiscal year 2011, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will initiate a formal Offshore Wind Program to promote and accelerate responsible commercial offshore wind development in the United States. During the Webinar, "Creating an Offshore Wind Industry in the United States: A National Vision and Call to Action," the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Wind and Water Power Program will outline its vision to guide the United States in creating a world-leading offshore wind industry. A "world leading offshore wind industry in the United States" will achieve 54 gigawatts of offshore wind deployment at a cost of 7-9 cents per kilowatt-hour by the year 2030, with an interim target of 10 gigawatts at 13 cents per kilowatt-hour by 2020.
This Webinar will also issue a call to action for the nation's resources to mobilize and harmonize in addressing the substantial barriers to offshore wind deployment.
To facilitate the discussion portion of the Webinar, the DOE Wind and Water Program would like participants to submit questions ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can address them on the 1-hour Webinar. Questions will be accepted from now until September 15.
