Webinar: Recommended Practices for Offshore Wind Development

Dec. 13, 2022

It is critical that companies and organizations working in the U.S. offshore wind market understand the developing U.S. offshore wind compliance standards. Join the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory on Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2022, at 11 a.m. ET, for a one-hour webinar to learn about the national offshore wind standards initiative and its objectives. There will also be an overview of the five guidance documents and their release dates. The five offshore wind recommended practice documents are:

  1. Offshore Compliance Recommended Practices (OCRP), Edition 2 (Approved)

  2. U.S. Floating Wind Systems Recommended Practices

  3. U.S. Offshore Wind Metocean Conditions Characterization

  4. U.S. Recommended Practices for Geotechnical and Geophysical Investigations and Design

  5. U.S. Recommended Practices for Submarine Cables

These guidance documents consider the unique offshore conditions on the U.S. outer continental shelf (OCS) and state waterways (e.g., Great Lakes). They provide guidance for offshore wind projects, covering a range of project implementation activities, including project design, construction and deployment practices, operation, safety, and decommissioning, while anticipating the new and evolving nature of offshore wind technology.
