Offshore Wind and New Hampshire: Procurement and Power Market Perspectives
14 Dixon Ave
14 Dixon Ave, Concord, NH 03301, USA
About the Webinar Event:
As offshore wind continues to grow in the US it faces major considerations regarding how its enormous electrical generation will impact energy markets and who will purchase the power. This has become a major focus area for politicians, ratepayers, and the industry. Join us on August 18th at 12:00 PM for an in-depth and important discussion on what this new resource means to our regional electric markets and infrastructure, what other states and countries have done to guarantee markets to this renewable energy source, and how New Hampshire might best position itself to take full advantage of this abundant resource. This webinar event is part of Clean Energy NH's offshore wind series.
John Dalton is President of Power Advisory and offers over 30-years of experience in the electricity sector. He led a team that advised the state of Rhode Island with the procurement of 400 MW from the Revolution Wind offshore wind project and assisted New York with the procurement of over 1,600 MW of offshore wind. In 2019, he led study that reviewed opportunities to participate in the US OSW supply chain. He has advised a number of parties pursuing opportunities to participate in the US offshore wind sector. This support has included profiling market participants to identify possible partners; drafting regional offshore wind market summaries that reviewed the policy environment, resource regimes, and developments to date; reviewing the offshore wind value chain as part of an assessment of the risks and rewards of offshore wind project development; assessing viable onshore interconnection points for offshore wind projects; reviewing the benefits and risks of alternative offshore transmission development models; and reviewing the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management offshore wind leasing process.
