ACP announced the full agenda and keynote speakers last week with Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee, Sens. Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Director Amanda Lefton giving keynote addresses at the conference.

The longest-running gathering of offshore wind energy professionals in the U.S., Offshore WINDPOWER has cultivated a dedicated and thriving global community of top developers, manufacturers, advocates, regulators, and other key stakeholders. Industry leaders, experts, and exhibitors will be showcasing the offshore wind industry and leading vital discussions on solutions to its most pressing challenges. With a robust leasing schedule underway and projects under construction and advanced development, this year’s event will be the biggest yet, as it only continues to grow in value and scope.
