Offshore Wind Regulatory Seminar

The Embassy hosted an Offshore Wind Regulatory Seminar on July 13 in our Atlantic Hall, focused on the importance of collaboration in sustainability efforts.

Norway is proud to partner with the United States as we work to lower global emissions.

Speakers included Senator Sheldon Whitehouse; Atlantic Council Global Energy Center Senior Fellow Joseph Webster; President and CEO of the Business Network for Offshore Wind Liz Burdock; Head of U.S. Offshore Wind at National Grid Ventures Nabil Hitti; Equinor Senior Director of Government Relations and Public Affairs Madeline Vey; and Senior Advisor for Clean Energy Infrastructure Robert Golden.

In her introductory remarks, Ambassador Anniken R. Krutnes said, “Norway stands together with our friends and allies in the United States, in Europe, and around the world in the energy transition. We are prepared to collaborate on all levels to develop the ‘once in a generation’ opportunity that offshore wind represents, creating well-paid jobs and tremendous value for all levels of society in the process.”
