Thank you for attending!

The Northwest Offshore Wind Conference has concluded, and we want to thank all of you who made this event a success: our speakers and panelists, sponsors, venue/catering/print partners, and of course our guests. Our goal was to bring together stakeholders for Offshore Wind in Oregon to spark dialogue and create connections. In this respect, we couldn't be more pleased with the event. The important conversations and relationships begun here must continue to develop. Moving forward, we at POET will continue facilitating this process wherever we can.

Please reach us at conference@pacificoceanenergy.org if you have any feedback about the event. And once again, thank you. Warmly,
The entire POET team

Northwest Offshore Wind Conference 2024

Conference gathered the region's stakeholders, experts, leaders, and industry representatives to focus on this key issue to benefit our communities, strengthen our energy security, and help us meet our clean energy goals.

The Pacific Ocean Energy Trust was pleased to host the Northwest Offshore Wind Conference on January 30-31, 2024. The goal was to ensure that the Pacific Northwest is prepared to take full advantage of the opportunities for offshore wind to help meet our climate goals and energy demands, while maximizing benefits for our communities and minimizing impacts on the ocean and its users. Thank you for joining us for this deep dive into offshore wind, and stay tuned for info on next year's NOW Conference soon!
