    A Mighty Offshore Wind: What a Wind Energy Boom Would Mean for Project Logistics

    For wind developers, equipment manufacturers, and project logistics service providers, news that the Biden administration will push the United States' nascent offshore wind energy industry to install 30 gigawatts by 2030 means an already-thriving industry segment is set to boom. With this commitment, the US joins a massive global drive to build out offshore wind. However, offshore logistics are highly specialized and strongly affected by regulations such as the Jones Act. Enthusiasm is high, but can everyone participate? During this session, experts in this specialized sector will examine the focused logistics scope and significant barriers to entry that characterize offshore wind project logistics, particularly in the US.
