B2B Meetings at AWEA 2020

Wind energy

12 - 14 October 2020

Market: United States

Location: Grand Hyatt Hotel, New York, USA


Norwegian Energy Partners will follow up the very successful delegation visit to AWEA Offshore Windpower Conference in Boston in October 2019 by organising a delegation visit to New York in October 2020 attending the Offshore WINDPOWER conference organized by American Wind Energy Association.

The offshore wind activity at the US east coast continue to grow and one is expecting record activity levels also in a global perspective in the next 3-5 years. With State driven offshore wind targets exceeding 25 GW, and 15 auctioned federal lease areas enabling at least 28 GW's, the US has become one of the world’s most significant offshore wind markets.

The developers are looking for the innovative solutions and now is the time to get engaged.

Norwegian Energy Partners will develop a solid B2B programme which will include a networking reception in cooperation with the Norwegian Consulate General in New York.

AWEA is a Conference rather than an exhibition, a meeting of minds rather than a meeting of displays and our focus will be on B2B Meetings between our delegation as a group and relevant stakeholders in the offshore wind value chain in the US. In addition, we are working towards individual meetings between yourselves and relevant stakeholders.

Natural targets for our B2B meetings will include but not be limited to 

  • CIP - Vineyard Wind
  • Ørsted - Revolution Wind, Ocean Wind and Sunrise Wind
  • Equinor - Empire Wind
  • Shell / EDPR - Mayflower
  • As well as with ENBW, EDF, Avangrid MHI Vestas, Siemens Gamesa and General Electric

If you'd like to meet others let us know and we will endeavor to organise such.
