Wind Energy: Craig Jones to Present at Offshore Wind Power Conference, IPF 2021
Craig Jones, Ph.D., will present during the annual International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum (IPF), hosted by the Business Network for Offshore Wind on August 24–26, 2021, online and in Richmond, Virginia. During the IPF event, speakers will tackle topics from what the U.S. needs to get to net zero, local opportunities within the growing global market, and using offshore wind to strengthen the country’s infrastructure.
Dr. Jones will present along with Sarah Courbis, Ph.D., from Advisian; Sam Denes, Ph.D., from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM); and Frank Thomsen, Ph.D., from DHI. See presentation details below. Other IPF speakers include Virginia Senator Mark Warner, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, representatives from the U.S. Department of Energy and BOEM, and industry leaders working to build the U.S. offshore wind industry as part of the country’s green energy infrastructure.
August 25, 2021, 2:30–3:30 p.m. Eastern
The Critical Role of Modelling in Offshore Wind Siting, Monitoring, and Adaptive Management, E10C/D
Data on species distribution and movement are difficult to obtain in offshore environments. Thus, for offshore wind to continue forward sustainably, ecological models must fill data gaps and predictions to plan and mitigate for potential environmental impacts. This workshop will describe what ecological models can and cannot do and how models can be used and should be interpreted in the context of siting, mitigation, and adaptive management. The outcome will be realistic expectations and understanding of appropriate use of models to minimize environmental impacts of offshore wind.
The annual IPF conference is the premier event for the offshore wind energy supply chain, which is now projected to be a $100 billion revenue opportunity in capital expenditures alone. The exhibit and conference will draw thousands of industry professionals representing more than 500 companies, all focused on sharing valuable insights on how to move the emerging U.S. wind industry forward.
The Business Network for Offshore Wind is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a robust offshore wind supply chain in the U.S. It advances the industry forward through education, facilitating partnerships, and events, including IPF, the largest offshore wind conference in America.
