Upcoming Conference: Friday, May 10, 2024

New York State has five offshore wind projects in development with the goal of generating 9,000 megawatts and meeting 50 percent of the state’s capacity by 2035. These projects will be engineering marvels, having profound effects on the state’s environment, economy, work force, and coastline communities.

The conference is a full-day event, free and open to the public, with a lunch. The morning session will feature speakers talking about federal, state, and city efforts to bring Offshore Wind Energy to Brooklyn. The speakers will include representatives from the US Department of Energy, NYSERDA, the NYC Economic Development Corporation, Equinor, and Con Edison. The afternoon session will focus on Brooklyn—first with a keynote during lunch on “A Just Transition to Clean Energy” and then with panels on business and workforce opportunities.
