Tulane Offshore Wind Conference set for Jan. 18


With Gulf wind leases a reality by 2025, the Tulane Energy Law Center announced that it will host the first Tulane Offshore Wind Conference: Barriers to the Gulf on Jan. 18 at the Tulane River and Coastal Center.

Tulane’s growing expertise in wind law makes it the perfect venue for a conference of regional, national and international leaders in the field, said Dr. Kristoffer Svendsen a Senior Research Fellow at Tulane and the event organizer.

The day-long conference, which will be held at the Tulane River and Coastal Center at the Port of New Orleans, will look at legal issues surrounding the leasing process, as well as compliance, financing and permitting, among other topics.

“This conference is an important piece for Louisiana to place itself as the offshore wind energy hub in the Gulf connecting legal professionals, the offshore wind industry, local and city authorities, and other actors in the offshore wind space,” Svendsen said.
