Join Partner Christine E. Dieter as she moderates and participates in a panel discussion at the upcoming Environmental Business Council of New England’s Ninth Annual Offshore Wind Conference. From the EBC:
This year’s EBC offshore wind conference will start off with an update from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) will provide an update on the latest offshore wind procurement in the Commonwealth. Staff from BOEM, the Responsible Offshore Science Alliance (ROSA), and the Responsible Offshore Development Alliance (RODA) will speak to the challenges and lessons learned in permitting these projects from a federal and fisheries perspective. Representatives from port facilities and wind developers will summarize the progress and outlook for their projects.
We will also include an update on trends driving the industry including protection of the North Atlantic Right Whales, fisheries industry interests, climate change, local workforce and supply chain opportunities for high paying union jobs, turbine foundations and vessels, and improvements on federal and state permitting.
