On this episode, hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham welcome the newly minted Executive Director of the Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW), Kris Ohleth. Kris is a 15-year veteran of offshore wind, having previously served as senior manager of stakeholder engagement at Ørsted Offshore North America, the company that won New Jersey’s first offshore wind solicitation in June 2019. Come along as we meet Kris and explore cutting edge developments happening right now in the offshore wind space. We take a close look at the impacts of the fastest growing industry on the American Shoreline. Based at the University of Delaware, SIOW has been as a clearinghouse for offshore wind policy and research—taking a cross-sector approach and convening policy makers, industry, NGOs, and other offshore wind stakeholders to better coordinate strategy, policy, and industry developments. Kris is a leading voice on this issue. Catch up. Only on ASPN.
