Event Description:

Thanks for Attending the German American Forum on Offshore Wind Energy!

The conference took place on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 in New York City. Hosted by the German American Chamber of Commerce the forum offered an opportunity for experts from Germany and local US innovators to discuss ways to cooperate.

The increased usage of renewable energies in our economies leads to a number of important challenges: The successful expansion of offshore wind energy capacities on the East Coast of the US, is among the most pressing questions in this regard. 

The event thus focused on technologies and solutions in the fields of offshore wind energy. As part of the forum, a German delegation presented their latest solutions, technologies and services to contribute to the development of more offshore wind energy capacities on the East Coast. Germany has been known for decades as a leader in renewable energy technologies. The event targeted professionals, researchers and thought leaders in the fields of offshore wind energy and renewable energy.
