Offshore wind is positioned to play a significant role in generating clean energy with great benefits for the American worker. The German city-state of Bremen has embarked upon this journey in transforming its traditional seaport into a vibrant economic hub for the offshore wind industry. This development is typical for Northern Europe where other seaport communities are striving to follow suit. The panel discussion will focus on how to best shape this encouraging vision to revitalize American advanced manufacturing supply chains and seaport economies.
