UDaily: Special Initiative for Offshore Wind convenes industry, government in D.C.

In Europe, offshore wind turbines support 58,000 jobs and generate enough electricity to power 6 million homes. Experts from the offshore wind industry gathered at the Capitol Thursday, June 12, to share lessons learned that could help produce similar results stateside.

Organized by the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative on Offshore Wind, which fosters collaboration among offshore wind energy industry, policy makers, non-government organizations and academics, the symposium focused on reducing costs and creating jobs.
