    Power is flowing to the grid from the nation’s first two utility-scale offshore wind projects off the New England coast, an accomplishment that has been a decade-plus in the making as each project navigated a complex and untested development process. As it matures from concept to commercial-scale, the U.S. offshore wind industry must leverage its experience to bring learnings and new solutions to speed offshore wind’s development cycle and build a more resilient market. Join our public and private-sector experts as they discuss ideas to the bring a complex sequence of federal review, state agreement, commercial viability, and technical ability into greater alignment, including considerations of multi-year versus annual lease planning, programmatic reviews, balancing timely deployment with technical advances, and considerations of coordinated transmission development.
