Rick Novak and Katie Kohm Financing Wind 2021 Virtual Roundtable Moderators: Overcoming State-level Challenges to US Offshore Wind Construction

Pierce Atwood partners Richard Novak and Katharine Kohm will moderate a discussion focusing on the state-level challenges that utilities, developers, contractors, and other stakeholders need to overcome to successfully build offshore wind farms in the U.S.

These challenges include regulatory hurdles, permitting, supply chain, contractual issues, and skills. Discussion topics include:

  • Most common obstacles to U.S. offshore wind companies getting “steel in the water”
  • States making the most progress on removing those obstacles and which ones need to catch up
  • Biggest differences among the states regarding politicians’ appetite for offshore wind
  • Does Vineyard Wind’s progress in navigating the permitting process give confidence to developers and contractors at other offshore wind projects?

Pierce Atwood is pleased to be the hospitality sponsor of this event. Please visit Financing Wind for more information and registration instructions.
