Offshore WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition

October 3-4, 2023   |   Boston, MA   |   Hynes Convention Center

Thank you to the over 2,100 attendees who joined us last year!

Offshore wind is America’s next major energy source.

Wind represents a generational opportunity to create jobs and bolster the economy.

Offshore wind is an abundant clean energy solution for large population centers looking to source more of their power from clean sources, and falling costs make it increasingly economical.

Offshore wind is a once-in-a-generation opportunity and its momentum forward continues leading into ACP’s Offshore WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition this fall. The event has cultivated a dedicated and thriving global community of top developers and experts. As more steel goes in the water, this event will only continue to grow in value and scope.
