DOW Collaboration with RWE Renewables Awarded NECEC 2021 Partnership of the Year
Diamond Offshore Wind received the NECEC (Northeast Clean Energy Council and NECEC Institute) ‘Partnership of the Year’ Award alongside RWE in recognition of their joint contributions to develop clean, renewable energy. DOW CEO Chris Wissemann accepted the award at the Northeast Clean Energy Council Green Tie Gala on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The virtual event was attended by hundreds of business leaders and stakeholders in the clean energy industry.
"Congratulations to the winners for their contributions of innovative business partner models, leading technologies, & deployment of clean energy in our region.”
Keeping Maine jobs in Maine, the New England Aqua Ventus project is a joint venture that aims to develop, construct, and operate a demonstration project using the University of Maine’s patented floating offshore wind technology. Sharing their vast experience in the offshore and energy industries in this partnership, DOW & RWE are advancing deep-water wind energy technology while providing solutions to our climate crisis.
“The need for clean economy solutions is driving significant changes in the clean energy industry,” said NECEC President Peter Rothstein. “Congratulations to the winners for their contributions of innovative business partner models, leading technologies, and deployment of clean energy in our region.”
Pioneering the development of floating offshore wind in the Gulf of Maine, DOW & RWE are currently working with local contractors, manufacturers, and communities to tackle one of the largest untapped sources of clean energy in the U.S. In addition to deploying the first floating offshore wind technology in the U.S., the DOW-RWE partnership aims to open a new and untapped federal lease area in the Gulf of Maine, seen as a critical component of attaining regional and national clean energy goals.
