The Offshore Wind Skills Academy, a joint effort by Danish Energy and Climate Academy and the University of Delaware are designed to provide education for the offshore industry. The new Academy will prepare US industry for the rapidly-growing opportunities in offshore wind power. The Academy is designed to prepare professionals, including those from traditional energy industries, wind developers, supply chain companies, regulators, investors, and stakeholders. Because the US offshore wind industry is still in its infancy, building the committed 10,000 MW over the next 12 years will require a new set of trained professionals and managers. During the last years more than 2000 have participated in the wind energy courses that Energy and Climate Academy offers and CEO Torben Kirkegaard look forward to the cooperation: Delaware University has many years of experience in renewable energy and combined with Danish knowledge and experienced lecturers from the US Offshore Industry we are proud to present the courses. Topics are covered in 1- to 3-day intensive sessions, taught by experienced professionals from Europe and the US who have designed, permitted and/or built offshore wind projects.
