In the lead up to Marine Renewables Canada’s (MRC) mission to the International Partnering Forum for Offshore Wind (IPF) in late April, MRC invites you to join a pre-mission webinar focused on providing the most recent insight on offshore wind development in the United States.
This webinar is designed to provide mission delegates, as well as MRC members and Canadian companies, information on the current state of offshore wind in the US. Attendees will get an update on the status of offshore wind projects, recent policy and regulatory activities, and supply chain opportunities from Brandon Burke, Vice President of Policy & Regulatory Engagement at the Business Network for Offshore Wind.
Mission delegates attending will also receive information about mission plans and what to expect at IPF to make the most out of their participation.
This webinar is open to anyone with an interest in the US offshore wind market – you do not need to be a mission delegate to attend. All are welcome!

Time: 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm AST
Virtual via Zoom
