Expired PAEP Webinar – February 23, 2023

The Promise of Offshore Wind Power on the US East Coast


This presentation will provide an overview of the drivers enabling the US offshore wind sector, discuss the federal (BOEM) and state regulatory frameworks, and reflect on the opportunities and challenges in siting, installing and integrating utility-scale offshore wind power on the U.S. east coast.

Presenter: Amardeep Dhanju is a Senior Project Manager at AECOM where he supports permitting and development of utility-scale offshore wind and other renewables. Prior to joining AECOM, he supported the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) as a Senior Policy Analyst. At BOEM, he facilitated the offshore oil & gas leasing program, helped streamline offshore wind regulations, coordinated the nation’s first National Ocean Policy, and supported environmental permitting of offshore wind projects.

From 2013-2017, Amardeep co-chaired an interagency group in the National Ocean Council (NOC) to coordinate Federal engagement in the National Ocean Policy and marine spatial planning. This engagement resulted in two certified regional ocean plans on the U.S. east coast to inform siting of new ocean uses such as offshore wind power. Amardeep was awarded the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) Partners in Conservation Award for leading this initiative.

Amardeep is an adjunct faculty at Johns Hopkins University Energy Policy and Climate program where he offers graduate courses and mentors’ students on their capstone projects.

Amardeep holds a Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. He is a 2010 Knauss Sea Grant fellow.
