The 2015 American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Offshore Windpower Conference & Exhibition will be held this 29-30 September in Baltimore, MD. AWEA events provide the latest in wind energy policy, education and business.

“We are at a historic crossroads for AWEA, the wind industry, and the planet. What we accomplish this year will have a profound impact on our collective future!” - Thomas Kiernan, CEO, AWEA.

José Zayas, Director of the Wind and Water Power Technologies Office, will begin the conference with a keynote presentation regarding the state of offshore wind power in the US.
