Infocast’s Pacific Offshore Wind Summit
March 28-30, 2022
Downey Brand is a supporting sponsor of the Pacific Offshore Wind Summit co-hosted by Infocast and Offshore Wind California. The three-day event, March 28-30, 2022, is being held in person at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco and will feature 65 expert speakers, 14 content-packed sessions, and premier networking opportunities to connect with key decision-makers in the industry.
Summit proceedings kick-off on March 28 with an Executive Briefing on Planning and Preparation for California Lease Auctions followed by two days of robust programming to discuss siting, permitting, and environmental issues, explore floating wind technology advances, and better understand the road map for development in this new clean-power market.
This is the 2022 offshore wind development summit perfectly timed to help you prepare for what will likely become one of the largest floating offshore wind deployments in the world! Offshore wind is coming to the U.S. West Coast. Federal lease auctions are expected by fall of 2022, with the first round supporting some 4.6 gigawatts (GW) of power – and that’s just off California. West Coast states are getting on track to establish a sustainable floating wind industry that will generate jobs and economic development for decades. California, with its landmark AB 525 legislation, is setting a path towards integrating 10 GW or more of offshore wind in its climate and clean-power strategy. Oregon, Washington and Hawaii are working to add offshore wind to their clean-power portfolios. These West Coast opportunities hold tremendous promise, but they also require different technologies, supply chains, and construction methods than fixed-bottom projects on the Atlantic Coast.
Attorneys Christian Marsh, Brian Cragg, and Megan Somogyi from our Energy Project Development team will be attending.
