Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Tuesday, November 1st from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm ET for our offshore wind roundtable, a private and off-the-record discussion. The discussion will feature two 60-minute panels: the first panel will focus on challenges in the permitting process and capacity-enabling reforms, while the second panel will discuss implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) within an OSW context. This workshop will be hybrid: participants will be welcome to join either in-person at the Atlantic Council offices or virtually via Zoom. We anticipate a full in-person audience and will be taking reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. The meeting will convene key stakeholders from the public and private sectors and feature remarks and presentations from experts.

The US has set a goal of developing 30 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind (OSW) capacity by 2030, which would power about 21 million homes. The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has made these objectives more achievable, as it extends various OSW credits while enabling new provisions. There has also been increasing interest in floating offshore wind projects, with some estimates showing that the floating OSW pipeline has doubled in the past year. On the other hand, permitting and transmission issues continue to challenge the sector and constrain its potential. Join us as we discuss the IRA’s implications for OSW and how permitting reform could impact the sector.

This is a private, off-the-record event under Chatham House rules. Please join this conversation either in the Atlantic Council offices or via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone.
