US Offshore Wind Risk Management Virtual

Dec 9, 2021

Key themes: prospecting & leasing, investments/finance, permitting, policy, supply chain contracting

Overview: US Offshore Wind is unlocked; with the switch from momentum to action well underway, it is now time to think very carefully about how to mitigate potential project risks.

For a market with just 5 operating wind farms, establishing long-term capital-intensive offshore wind projects carries great uncertainty and risk for investors and project developers, due to lack of data regarding permitting, construction, and operations. From the very first stages such as investing and permitting procedures to later policy and supply chain concerns, managing risks and potential litigation is an overarching topic.

Join us for a virtual event and approach the mitigation of risks in US offshore wind, ranging from technical details (wind speed, cost, grid integration, supply chain contracting) to stakeholder engagement strategies (permitting and environmental impacts on maritime ecosystems) as well as political considerations.
