The Call for Abstracts for the Offshore WINDPOWER 2023 is closed and we are no longer accepting submissions. The primary authors of the abstracts will be notified via email whether their abstracts were selected by August 2023.


ACP’s Call for Abstracts Policy:

  1. IMPORTANT: ACP reserves the right to accept all or part of your abstract. Full panel submissions are subject to review and not all proposed speakers are guaranteed a speaking slot. In some instances, similar abstracts are likely to be combined to create one, comprehensive, panel session.
  2. All abstracts must be submitted electronically through ACP’s submission website. No submissions will be accepted via email or other means.
  3. Only a complete submission is eligible for review.
  4. All commercial sales pitches will not be accepted for a presentation.
  5. Proposals must be well-organized and clearly describe their relevance to the industry and how the information presented could be applied or used in practice. Applicants are encouraged to use case studies, offer solutions and takeaways, and include specifics topic data.
  6. Proposals should contain new perspective or data and not have been presented previously.
  7. More than one proposal may be submitted.
  8. The program committee will review all the submitted proposals and select the most interesting and appropriate proposals for this year’s program. We will also invite others to present on topics that we did not receive suitable proposals on but see as necessary for the program. Session topics are pre-determined by the program committee.
  9. No late submissions will be accepted.

ACP will be accepting abstracts across the following focus areas:

  • Permitting & Siting – What can be done to improve the permitting and siting process to ensure more stability for supply chain timelines and durability for the industry?
  • Interconnection – How do we cost-effectively integrate offshore wind into the grid to ensure a steady deployment of offshore wind that is able to deliver electricity on time to states?
  • Supply Chain – While the offshore wind industry is starting construction on the east coast, our supply chain is growing across the US, from Florida and Louisiana to Illinois and Wisconsin. How do we help tell this story and gain bipartisan support for offshore wind?
  • Construction – Construction is ongoing now! How do we learn from ongoing techniques and build efficiencies?
  • Workforce – What workforce training challenges are the greatest and how do we work to recruit and train for them?
  • Safety – Offshore safety is essential to a successful industry. What is the industry doing to ingrain a safety culture from the start?
  • Public Engagement – What are the best ways for companies to continue to engage with local communities, tribes, marine stakeholders, the general public, etc?

Please note that selected speakers will be required to register for the conference at a significantly discounted rate. ACP is a non-profit and this helps the organization cover some basic conference costs. Revenue from ACP events goes back to the industry through ACP’s efforts to grow the U.S. clean power industry and support clean energy professionals.
