US and Canada Bolster Offshore Wind Ties

The Business Network for Offshore Wind and Marine Renewables Canada have entered into an affiliation agreement to share knowledge and support the development of offshore wind.

The aim of the agreement is to demonstrate the commitment to ensuring Canadian and U.S. industry and suppliers receive increased support to engage in offshore wind development.

According to Marine Renewables Canada, although Canada does not yet have active offshore wind development, many suppliers have experience from working in related marine and offshore industries that could contribute to helping the U.S. meet its offshore wind goals.

“Offshore wind is a growing industry vital to the growth of a blue economy. We look forward to working closely with Marine Renewables Canada cultivate to cultivate the opportunities in the US and Canada,” said CEO and President of the Business Network for Offshore Wind, Liz Burdock.

“By working together, we can help industry collaborate on key issues, build partnerships, and share information that will support advancement of the industry.”
