Tune in to our FREE virtual US Offshore Wind ConfEx where you will learn everything there is to know about US offshore wind. From financing, permitting, supply chain development, transmission planning, construction and installation, floating wind, regulatory updates, project case studies and many more topics - we have it covered! 

Virtual networking and supply chain partnering is at the heart of this virtual event. It's where the early commercial relationships are forged among investors developers, manufacturers, ports, transmission operators and the supply chain. Competition is fierce and only the early movers will reap the most reward. Just one offshore wind project can provide multiple multi-million-dollar contracts to develop port infrastructure, transmission and offshore wind arrays, stimulating the rapid expansion of an entirely new offshore wind value chain.

Find out what the global offshore wind industry experts had to say about US offshore wind market opportunities and challenges.
