Ocean Energy Conference in Portland Draws Hundreds
The two-day conference is drawing participants from across the globe for a look at all aspects of offshore renewable energy.
Hundreds of stakeholders from the ocean energy industry converged on Portland this morning for the start of a two-day international conference looking at every aspect of offshore renewable energy.
Many regard Maine as a leader in the field of offshore wind power, thanks largely to research being done at the University of Maine.
The conference's keynote speaker, Dr. Christopher Hart, offshore wind manager with the U.S. Department of Energy, says securing large-scale investment is key to achieving this goal.
