Global offshore wind capacity has now reached 1.5GW with another 1.5GW under construction. In the US, the MMS has been receiving lease applications for offshore wind farms since June 2009. With the North American regulatory environment now supporting the development of offshore wind, the market looks set for rapid growth.
Offshore Wind Power will address the key issues faced by the North American market in deploying offshore wind farms. This event will enable you to connect with leading developers, policy makers, utilities and market experts, to examine the challenges that need to be overcome and create a roadmap for the successful deployment of offshore wind farms.

Close of Conference
Whether you are new to the wind industry or simply want to refresh and update your knowledge, this one-day training course will ensure you are up-to-speed with the key, fundamental aspects of the wind power industry. You will learn both about how wind turbines operate, how they can best be implemented to harness the wind's energy and the factors which decide their commercial success or failure. Technologies are placed in their relevant business context, with reference to potential wind resources, the wider power market and considering some of the practical, economic and regulatory factors affecting demand and supply.
The course can be attended as a stand-alone session or as an excellent way to introduce yourself to or refresh your knowledge of wind power before attending the "Offshore Wind" conference on the following days.
