About the event

Title: Autonomous Solutions Responding to the Oceanographic and Ecological Monitoring Needs of Offshore Wind Development

Description: Recent successes using autonomous platforms in the development of offshore wind projects have demonstrated the ability for these systems to augment and completely replace vessel-based surveys. Through this proposed track we will assemble a variety of perspectives to discuss: 1) Examples from the global community that present different applications of autonomous systems and offshore wind; 2) Challenges and opportunities for acceptance of these methods into existing regulatory requirements; 3) Timelines for incorporation of these solutions into for offshore wind development

Moderator: Andy Ziegwied (Open Ocean Robotics)

Panelists: The panel will represent government, research, and private sector perspectives. The panel discussion with the audience will be moderated by the organizers and focus on the needs and opportunities that could be addressed by autonomous platforms in the context of offshore wind development. The panel members have all confirmed their participation at the event and include:

Government: Timothy Rowell (NOAA/SEFSC)

Industry: Joe Wolfel (Terradepth)

Industry: Clara Hulburt (Teledyne)

Research: Grace Saba (Rutgers)

Developer representative: Ruth Perry (Shell)

Learner Outcomes: The anticipated audience for this session will range from general interest in the topic to experts in the field. To balance that experience distribution, the learner outcomes of this session include a general understanding of the state of the innovation in the use of autonomous platforms and associated sensor technology. This will be accomplished through examples shared by the panelists. The second primary learner objective will be a working knowledge of the regulatory considerations for incorporation of these platforms with what we anticipate will be clarity on individual and institution contributions audience members can do to advance the use of non-extractive techniques in offshore wind development.
