Innovation Series Event: Offshore Wind in New England: Lessons Learned, The Way Forward

The north-east US is one of the world’s premier opportunities for offshore wind energy – a 1000 mile coastline with a wide continental shelf on one side and major population centers on the other. Offshore wind technology continues to advance, but Cape Wind’s experience in developing the first major offshore site in the US has shown us that the challenges to further development are political and social, as well as economic.  What are the prospects and the challenges? Where do we go from here? This event will be moderated by Ian Bowles former Massachusetts Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs. Panelists: Bryan Martin, Managing Director and Co-head of the D. E. Shaw group’s U.S. growth and buyout  private equity unit. The D. E. Shaw Group  is the majority investor in Deepwater Wind, LLC, a major offshore wind developer; Karl Klos-Hein of EEW ,  one of the world’s leading offshore wind farm construction companies; Ed Krapels,  the Founder of Anbaric Holding, LLC,  a development and financing organization for offshore wind transmission electrical grid projects; Marcy L. Reed is President of National Grid in Massachusetts.  She is responsible for the financial, operational, and customer service performance of the business in Massachusetts and manages the relationships with regulators, government officials and the communities National Grid serves.
