Global Offshore Wind in the US - in partnership with Orrick
Over the course of three special interviews, we will take a trip around the globe to analyse the status of the offshore wind sector in three key regions; North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
In today’s interview, our guests will focus their discussion on the arrival of offshore wind to the North American market.
