The Future of Offshore Wind: Innovation + Startup Showcase

November 16 @ 5:30 pm 8:00 pm ET

Featuring pitches from the Go Energize 2023 Cohort startups, in partnership with Vineyard Wind and MassCEC

Join us in celebrating the culmination of Go Energize 2023, a Greentown Go startup-corporate partnerships accelerator program focused on decarbonizing our energy system, in partnership with Vineyard Wind and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.

Together, our partners have supported five innovative startups in accelerating the commercialization of solutions including offshore wind turbine monitoring, ecological data collection offshore, and more. Attendees will hear the Go Energize 2023 cohort speak about their technologies and how these innovations will enable a sustainable and economically feasible offshore wind industry.

A total of 40 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity is set to come online in the United States in the next decade. Cutting-edge technology is key for offshore wind energy projects to be developed in an environmentally responsible manner while also delivering electricity for consumers. Go Energize 2023 aims to reduce barriers to entry through industry education and relationship-building across relevant networks.
