U.S. offshore wind leader to sponsor environmental leadership event

Maryland LCV is delighted to once again have Ørsted, the global and U.S. leader in offshore wind, as the title sponsor for its 22nd annual Changemakers: Celebrating Environmental Leaders event set for Thursday, October 5, 2023.

David Hardy, Group EVP and CEO Americas at Ørsted.

“We are pleased to partner with Maryland LCV for a third year through their Changemakers event,” said David Hardy, Group EVP and CEO Americas at

Ørsted. “We share their goals of helping Maryland to become a national leader in offshore wind and advancing environmental justice. We congratulate Maryland on signing into law The POWER Act and its commitment to expanding offshore wind.”

“Our Skipjack Wind project will deliver clean, reliable energy to nearly 300,000 homes in the region, create family-supporting jobs, and stimulate in-state economic investment, helping ensure the state’s underserved communities have equal access to the substantial opportunities created by offshore wind.”

“The Skipjack Wind program will yield over $735 million in commitments to the State of Maryland,” reflected Kim Coble, Executive Director of Maryland LCV. “The project will create thousands of temporary construction and long-term supply chain and operations jobs. We are thrilled to again partner with Ørsted to highlight environmental leaders in our state.”

Changemakers honors Marylanders who have demonstrated vision, leadership, and courage in protecting clean water, healthy air, and resilient communities and celebrate with small-plate fare and a signature cocktail at the environmental event in Maryland!

It will be (another) night to remember. We can’t wait to see you!

We are grateful for the support of all of our 2023 Changemakers Sponsors. Their support helps mobilize Marylanders to use their political power and help move Maryland toward 100% clean energy by 2025.
