OSW Industry Summit Conference

May 11, 2022 | Coos Bay, Oregon

The 2022 Oregon Offshore Wind Industry Summit brought leadership from the floating offshore wind industry to the coast of Oregon for direct engagement with state and local leadership. The goal: to begin charting the course for Oregon’s first 3 GW of OSW. 

With Oregon’s Draft Call Areas now identified and a state planning goal for 3 GW of offshore wind energy by 2030, we explored pathways for coexistence by design for OSW with Oregon’s ecology, stakeholders, and communities, and learned more about the unique opportunities available in the Coos Bay area.
