SUMMARY:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), Wind and Water Power Program, is planning a series of public events to exchange information on the development of offshore wind energy in the United States. In these events, the Program will outline the vision it has developed to guide the U.S. in creation of a world-leading offshore wind industry; focusing on ways in which the various interested sectors (i.e. academia, industry, state and local governments, the public at large) can harmonize their efforts to address barriers to deployment.
