Clemson University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and North Carolina State University hosted the Southeast Regional Offshore Wind Power Symposium that attracted 140 participants with standing room only.

The Southeast Regional Offshore Wind Power Symposium intended to:

  • Increase awareness on the offshore wind potential in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia.
  • Educate key policy makers on the environmental and economic benefits of offshore wind power generation.
  • Identify key political and social issues that must be resolved to establish offshore wind power.
  • Develop a roadmap with a framework that will promote offshore wind power development in the southeastern coast.
  • Promote educational interest in offshore wind power for undergraduate and graduate students in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Participants asked for a second annual symposium and representatives from Virginia would like to be included. The symposium's Web site contains a proceedings, the attendee list, pictures from the symposium, and press articles.
