Planned Offshore Grid: An American Dream Come True

Planned offshore grid

This webinar is organized by American Clean Power and sponsored by DNV

The energy sector undoubtedly plays a crucial role in accomplishing the 1.5 C° climate change threshold target, and offshore wind energy is expected to be a major contributor to the energy transition. However, the offshore wind industry faces a major question: is the current one-interconnection-per-project approach sufficient to fully enable offshore wind deployment? And if not, what is needed to ensure that 30 GW of offshore wind can be absorbed into the nation’s power grid by 2030 (and beyond), within the constraints of technical, economic, and political feasibility? Many regional and global experts see the planned offshore grid as a way forward, but this solution, as do all, presents advantages, challenges, and complexities.

Join us on Tuesday, January 25th at 2 PM EST as experts from Anbaric Development Partners and DNV come together to discuss key topics related to the offshore grid concept, including planning, technology compatibility and interoperability, infrastructure and supply chain, industry collaboration, and more.

Featured Speakers:

Clarke Bruno - Anbaric 200x200pClarke Bruno is Chief Executive Officer of Anbaric. He has twenty-five years of private and public sector experience in energy development and law. He joined the company in 2010 as its general counsel and became President of Transmission in 2017. Prior to joining Anbaric, Mr. Bruno served as energy and environmental counsel to NJ Governor Corzine where he helped draft the energy master plan and increase investment in the grid. During NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s first term, Mr. Bruno led the effort that won dismissal of multiple, decades-old class action lawsuits. Before entering government, he practiced law for nine years following a federal clerkship. Mr. Bruno chaired the NYC Bar Association’s energy committee from 2012-2015. Mr. Bruno graduated with honors from Swarthmore College where he won a Watson fellowship to study in Ghana and Brazil and cum laude from New York University School of Law where he was awarded a Hays fellowship. He once was fluent in French and Portuguese. 

Janice Fuller - Anbaric 200x200pJanice Fuller is President, Mid-Atlantic for Anbaric Development, where she leads efforts to develop offshore wind transmission infrastructure. Prior to joining Anbaric, Ms. Fuller served as Chief of Staff to Congressman and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Frank Pallone (NJ-06), and previously served as District Director. She has also held roles as Director of Cabinet Affairs in the administration of Governor Jon Corzine where she oversaw the operations of several state departments and as the Executive Director of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, as well as senior leadership roles in numerous political campaigns. Ms. Fuller graduated with honors from Boston University. She is an elected member of the Board of Education in her hometown in New Jersey, currently serving as Board President, as well as serving as a board member of the Boys & Girls Club of Monmouth County.

Marion Hill - Anbaric 200x200pMarion Hill is focused on accelerating the trajectory towards net zero and delivering a carbon free power grid. Marion leads a team providing data-backed opinions to DNV’s customers, enabling them to site, develop, design, finance and operate renewable energy projects and power grids at the lowest cost and meet their returns on investments. She surrounds herself with a brilliant team of industry-leading experts that are dedicated to tackling climate change. Marion uses strong leadership to evolve digital transformation and advance positions for people of colour and women in the renewables industry.

Farshid Saheli 200x200pFarshid Salehi received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in 2007 and 2011 from Iran and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Texas, Arlington (UTA), in 2018, all in Electrical Engineering with focus on power systems. He has more than 12 years of academic and industrial experience in power system. He has extensive and in-depth knowledge of Renewable technologies, offshore grid design, Electromagnetic Transients (EMT) modeling, power system planning and generation/transmission integrations. He has worked as an engineer at Monenco consulting engineer, researcher at Energy System Research Center (ESRC) and currently is working as a senior engineer at DNV where he is mainly focused on grid planning and integration of renewables and grid enhancement technologies.

Cornelis Plet 200x200pDr. Cornelis Plet is a principal consultant in the field of HVDC system development and offshore power systems with the Electrical Engineering team in DNV Energy Systems North America. Over the last 5 years he has been coordinator of the EU-funded ‘Progress On Meshed Offshore HVDC Transmission Networks’ project, and, as part of this project, led the development of a full-power test environment for HVDC circuit breakers. Mr. Plet currently consults transmission system operators, offshore wind developers and governmental organizations on how to use HVDC technology in the most cost-effective and reliable way to achieve their business and climate targets. Prior to this, he was active in the field of failure investigations on high voltage cables and substation equipment. Mr Plet holds and MEng in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, and a PhD in Control of Power Electronics Interfaced Distributed Generators, both from Imperial College London.
