With international interest in alternative energy sources gaining strength, it seems the open seas may present the next big opportunity: offshore wind farms.

Seward & Kissel has joined forces with Lautec US, a premier consulting and IT development firm specializing in offshore wind projects, to provide an overview of the various stages involved in the development of an offshore wind farm. From initial project development to decommissioning, this article explains the processes, relationships, and legal issues associated with each stage. Part one of this article series is available here. The subsequent articles in this series will cover the legal and regulatory issues under the Jones Act in more detail and special considerations for investors who are exploring opportunities in, or related to, offshore wind farms.
