Ask an Expert OSW Webinar Series #1 – Offshore Wind Technologies 101

October 12, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


Let’s start at the very beginning. How does offshore wind work? In this first webinar of MRC’s Ask an Expert series, we’ll explore how power is created, where it goes, how big these offshore wind turbines really are, the difference between floating and fixed, footprint of farms, onshore facilities required, and more!

To answer these questions for Canadians, we’ll be hearing from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) Research Engineer, Mark Severy. PNNL is one of America’s leading centers for scientific discovery and innovation in sustainable energy. Mark’s cutting edge work on offshore wind energy at PNNL includes collecting meteorological and oceanographic data on potential offshore wind areas via lidar buoys, evaluating the potential environmental effects of offshore wind farms, and planning for transmission. Mark is a licensed mechanical engineer and holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and a MS in Environmental Engineering from Humboldt State University in California.

Join MRC and guest speaker, Mark Severy, to learn more about offshore wind technology basics and best practices to address some of the challenges with deploying offshore wind at a commercial scale. 

This webinar is free to attend ~ registration is required.
