This year, the next Pacific Offshore Wind Summit 2023 on May 8-10 will be held in Sacramento, the center of the state’s policymaking, as the California Energy Commission (CEC) works with other policy leaders to prepare a full Strategic Plan for developing offshore wind – due by June 30 per the landmark AB 525 law. To be successful, this plan must identify suitable sea space for the state’s 25 GW goal, necessary transmission, and port infrastructure, an efficient and comprehensive process for permitting, and stakeholder engagement to protect cultural and marine resources.
The Pacific Offshore Wind Summit 2023 will explore what this means for the offshore wind industry and how the U.S. West Coast states can stay on track to establish a sustainable floating wind industry and supply chain that will generate jobs and economic development for decades. We’ll also take a look at how California can become a global leader and hub for floating offshore wind development, jobs, and expertise – in the Pacific Rim region and beyond.
Join us at the Pacific Offshore Wind Summit to get the latest on siting, permitting, ports, procurement, transmission, and environmental issues; explore floating wind technology advances; get briefed on federal and state offshore wind policies; and better understand the road map ahead.
