America’s new ocean energy resource

The U.S. has a vast offshore wind energy resource. Our shores possess a power potential of more than 2,000 gigawatts (GW), nearly double the nation's current electricity use. This potential presents an enormous opportunity to deliver large amounts of clean and reliable electricity to the country’s largest population centers, where it’s needed most.

Webinar Recording: The Growing Offshore Wind Industry: Supply Chain Projections and Opportunities through 2030

America's growing offshore wind power industry — now projected to generate 18.6 GW of clean, cost-effective power in seven states on the Atlantic Seaboard by 2030 — is presenting a nearly $70 billion CAPEX revenue opportunity to businesses in the offshore wind power supply chain over the course of the next decade. In this webinar, the Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW) and Renewables Consulting Group (RCG), present the predicted volume of components and revenue opportunities for suppliers within this $70 billion CAPEX opportunity between now and 2030, with quantification broken down by industry component, and by state.

The webinar also discusses the typical contracting timelines for major offshore wind components. Speakers includes Justin Gerdes (Moderator), Contributing Writer, Greentech Media, Stephanie McClellan, Director, Special Initiative on Offshore Wind, University of Delaware, Simon Redfern, Senior Director, The Renewables Consulting Group.

AWEA Offshore WINDPOWER 2020 Virtual Summit

The U.S. offshore wind industry is set to deliver significant economic benefits over the next decade. In addition to providing clean, affordable, and reliable power, the U.S. Offshore Wind Power Economic Impact Assessment estimates that developing 30,000 megawatts (MW) of offshore wind along the East Coast could support up to 83,000 jobs and deliver $25 billion in annual economic output by 2030.

AWEA is focused on reconstructing the 2020 Offshore WINDPOWER Virtual Summit to create a valuable and successful online experience allowing you to connect during this critical time in the offshore wind sector. Participants will have available live presentations, on-demand sessions, matchmaking, a marketplace of product & service providers, and unique shared social experiences.

Offshore 2014 - Creating a Safe and Ready Workforce

One of the most important aspects of the emerging offshore renewable energy industry is ensuring our local workforce is ready to take advantage of these job opportunities. Preparing the offshore wind workforce in the U.S. raises a few questions such as are there industry standards or best practices for workforce development in the U.S. and what specific types of training will be required? This session examines the training and education programs currently available and discusses how the wind energy industry is ensuring worker safety and health practices for offshore wind energy. To address these issues an overview will be provided of the comprehensive health and safety zero-harm workforce training and development necessary to prepare US workers for the offshore renewable energy industry.
