Offshore Wind Challenge Cohort Highlights Their Work with Vineyard Wind + Commitment to Advancing the Industry
This winter, we were proud to celebrate the culmination of the Offshore Wind Challenge—a corporate partnerships accelerator run by Greentown Labs and Vineyard Wind with support from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) that advanced innovations in the responsible development of offshore wind.
The Offshore Wind Challenge focused on marine mammal monitoring, specifically for data collection and real-time transmission or data analysis. Over the course of six months, the participating companies—Open Ocean Robotics, Night Vision Technology Solutions, and SICDRONE—worked with the program partners to receive extensive mentoring, business training, and access to resources to advance their technological and commercial development, working toward mutually agreed upon goals in cooperation with Vineyard Wind.
At the program’s Final Showcase, the cohort presented their progress, work with Vineyard Wind, and plans for the future. We were also honored to have Massachusetts State Senator Marc Pacheco join us and share his wisdom on the offshore wind industry and climate policy.
