This webinar is free to members and non-members. It will take place on August 13th at 2pm ET/ 1pm CT.
The Gulf of Mexico’s unparalleled strengths in offshore energy uniquely positions Louisiana to contribute to the burgeoning offshore wind industry, one that is anticipated to create nearly 83,000 jobs and contribute $57 billion to the US economy by 2030. Louisiana firms are already contributing to the industry along the Atlantic coast, but now is the time to plan for offshore wind development on the Gulf coast to realize the industry’s considerable benefits for Louisiana’s ports, coastal communities, fabrication facilities and uniquely adept workforce.
Join us on August 13th at 2pmET/1pmCT for an introductory webinar to the offshore wind industry, and hear from industry experts on the state of offshore wind across the country on why this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity that is ripe for Louisiana.
Whether you’re already in the offshore energy space looking to enter into this exciting industry, an organization that is interested in a new industry that offers workforce opportunities for Louisianans, an elected official or an economic developer eager to learn about offshore wind’s supply chain potential, this webinar is an excellent opportunity to learn from experts in their field.
