Upcoming Events: 

February 1, 2022: 7:30 p.m. Offshore Wind & Hampton Roads by Jerry Cronin & Matt Smith

With a national target to deploy 30 GW of offshore wind by 2030, a new industry with great economic promise for Hampton Roads is growing. Dominion Energy’s Offshore Wind projects place Virginia in a position to be a leader of offshore wind development in
the U.S. The Commonwealth is well-suited as a supply chain and innovation hub for this new industry with our best-in-class port infrastructure, a large and skilled maritime workforce, and competitive business climate. The opportunity from offshore wind, market drivers, the project pipeline on the East Coast, Virginia’s offshore wind advantages, and the effort to establish Hampton Roads as a hub of this new industry will be discussed.
