Save the dates! Exploring the Feasibility of Offshore Wind Energy for the CA North Coast

UPDATE (8/31): Registration for all sessions is now open

This fall, our team is hosting a series of five webinar workshops on the feasibility of offshore wind energy development on California’s north coast.

In each webinar, we will share topical findings from our recently conducted studies. After each presentation, there will be a moderated panel discussion. Webinar participants will then be invited to share their insights, questions, and perspectives.


  • Monday, September 14: Energy Production and Delivery, and Economic Development
  • Monday, September 21: Ecological and Geological Environment
  • Monday, September 28: Port and Coastal Infrastructure
  • Monday, October 5: Community Perspectives on Regional Impacts and Opportunities
  • Monday, October 12: Reflections and Next Steps

Webinars will begin broadcasting at 2 pm (Pacific), and range in duration from 2-3 hours. We welcome participation in these events from a broad audience. Each session is free and open to the public, and closed-caption recordings will be released following each webinar.


We will open registration for all sessions on August 31. Agendas for each webinar will be posted on our wind studies page in advance of each webinar — as well as links to related reports as they are released.
