The Wind Program will be exhibiting at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Offshore WINDPOWER 2013 Conference & Exhibition in Providence, Rhode Island, from October 22-23, 2013. If you're attending, visit DOE's booth, #401, to learn more about the program's latest offshore wind energy research and development efforts and pick up a copy of the latest publications. DOE Wind Program representatives will be staffing the booth to answer questions and provide information to the wide range of industry stakeholders attending the conference, including industry professionals, experts, leaders, decision makers, and researchers. The full agenda and list of exhibitors are available on the AWEA Offshore WINDPOWER website.
On October 21, prior to the conference, DOE Wind Program representatives will be participating in the U.S. Offshore Wind Market and Supply Chain Workshop, which will present results from the DOE-funded annual offshore wind market report. The workshop will include discussions on trends in the global offshore wind market, supply chain opportunities, port readiness, and jobs and investment forecasts.
