SWEP GP Lunch and Learn -

Offshore Wind and the Environmental Professional

Our shared home, planet Earth, is under growing pressure from climate change caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.  The US federal government, states, developers, and other stakeholders are teaming up to accelerate the transition to renewable energy in a race to reduce global temperatures. Partly driving this effort, the Biden administration announced a bold goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind in the U.S. by 2030. Please join us for a 1-hour session to learn about offshore wind farm basics, the current status of the offshore wind industry, and the role the environmental professional plays in helping to achieve ambitious renewable energy goals.

Presenter: Katie Eberhart
Date & Time: Wednesday, August 17th, 2022 @ 12:00PM
Cost: Free for Members (Member benefit), $10* for Non-Members
