The ninth annual International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum (IPF) concluded last week with record-high attendance and though-provoking discussions about the booming offshore wind market. Such conversations come at a critical time as the U.S. hopes to generate 30 gigawatts (GW) of energy from offshore wind by 2030. To succeed at scale, the U.S. is already enhancing its port infrastructure, electric grid, and transmission planning process at coastal “hubs” in New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. These offshore wind hubs have the potential to boost local economies and infrastructure by creating “…distributive renewable energy ecosystems in the same way that Silicon Valley and the semiconductor industry shaped the modern world.”
The 2022 International Partnering Forum (IPF), the premier offshore wind energy conference in North America, takes place this week in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Come visit our INSPIRE Environmental attendees, including Dr. Drew Carey, Jeanine Boyle, Dr. Kathy Vigness-Raposa, Dr. Kersey Sturdivant, and Dr. Dara Wilber at Booth 1136 to learn more about our innovative approaches and services for evaluating seafloor health like Sediment Profile Imaging (SPI), Forward Scouting™, and INSPIREagility. Don’t forget to stop by Atlantic City Convention Center 310 and 311 on April 28th to hear Dr. Drew Carey, Dr. Kathy Vigness-Raposa, and Dr. Dara Wilber share their recent insights about offshore wind research, practices, and management.
