American Clean Power: Planned Offshore Grid – An American Dream Come True
The energy sector undoubtedly plays a crucial role in accomplishing the 1.5 C° climate change threshold target, and offshore wind energy is expected to be a major contributor to the energy transition. However, the offshore wind industry faces a major question: is the current one-interconnection-per-project approach sufficient to fully enable offshore wind deployment? And if not, what is needed to ensure that 30 GW of offshore wind can be absorbed into the nation’s power grid by 2030 (and beyond), within the constraints of technical, economic, and political feasibility? Many regional and global experts see a planned offshore grid as a way forward, but this solution presents advantages, challenges, and complexities that will be dissected in our panel discussion.
Join us on Tuesday, January 25th at 2 PM EST as experts from Anbaric Development Partners and DNV come together to discuss key topics related to the offshore grid concept, including planning, technology compatibility and interoperability, infrastructure and supply chain, industry collaboration, and more.
