WEC announced today that it is has signed on as a cooperating partner for the 2018 International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum (IPF). The IPF is the number one technical conference for offshore wind in the United States hosted by the Business Network for Offshore Wind (the Network). The conference brings together the industry’s global and U.S. experts to generate new business opportunities and strengthen the U.S. offshore wind supply chain. The conference will be held from April 3-6 at the Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village in Princeton, New Jersey. Registration is now open.

“Thanks to the support of organizations like New Jersey Work Environment Council, we are able to deliver the leading domestic technical conference for offshore wind where we are building valuable partnerships and facilitating critical conversations that will help us successfully move the industry forward and create a domestic supply chain,” said Liz Burdock, executive director of the Network. “A decision to support the IPF is a decision to support the significant economic, environmental and health benefits that offshore wind can bring to the United States.”

In its fifth year, the IPF draws more than 600 attendees annually, including the industry’s leading global experts and developers. Attendees have the opportunity to connect with a network of synergistic businesses, suppliers and organizations in the offshore wind industry; develop networks for business financing, business-to-business sales, education and workforce development; and determine their niche in the offshore wind industry.

“Generating energy from offshore wind is the most obvious, yet untapped, strategy to allow New Jersey to reach its clean energy goals,” said Dan Fatton, executive director of WEC. “Having IPF in New Jersey is especially fitting this year, as our state is finally poised to move forward on offshore wind.”

Mark your calendars now for the Business Network for Offshore Wind’s International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum (IPF), April 3-6, 2018, Princeton, NJ.
