Offshore Wind and the Environmental Professional
Wednesday, November 16, 2022 (Noon) Eastern
Our shared home, planet Earth, is under growing pressure from climate change caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The US federal government, states, developers, and other stakeholders are teaming up to accelerate the transition to renewable energy in a race to reduce global temperatures. Partly driving this effort, the Biden administration announced a bold goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind in the U.S. by 2030. Please join us for a 1-hour session to learn about offshore wind farm basics, the current status of the offshore wind industry, and the role the environmental professional plays in helping to achieve ambitious renewable energy goals.
Presenter: Katie Eberhart is a Senior Environmental and Permitting Specialist at Orsted where she oversees a broad range of environmental issues associated with the Skipjack Wind project in Delaware and Maryland. She brings to that role more than 22 years of experience managing natural resource projects; assessing and minimizing ecological impacts; creating sustainable ecosystems through restoration, habitat enhancement, and stewardship projects; and developing practical solutions to protect biodiversity in the built environment. She joined Orsted in September 2021 after more than 20 years in environmental consulting in the Philadelphia area.
