VENTUS AWARDS

The Network’s Ventus Awards are named after what is essential to the work we do: wind. As the Latin word for wind, ‘ventus’ is rooted in many of the languages we speak to discuss–and harness–this important power. It also refers to the Venti, or Roman Gods for wind–each with their own directional power from north, south, east, and west. These ten awards honor those people, companies and organizations that embody the powerful force of wind to set the industry on course for new and better future, be it products, programs, or technology that allow us to harness wind to better lives of those around us through clean energy, a safer environment, and innovative jobs.

Heronemus Award for Outstanding Achievement in Offshore Wind

Honors an individual who has contributed significantly to the expansion of offshore wind energy. Named in honor of William Edward Heronemus (1920 – 2002), it recognizes an individual’s leadership, dedication, and unwavering perseverance to accelerate the offshore wind industry.

Bill Heronemus, known as the “father of modern wind power”, was the inventor of offshore wind products and terms today that are considered the backbone of offshore wind. He served in the Navy during World War II and received a Bronze Star for his service. Following the war, he attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology, receiving an M.S. in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering and worked for the Navy for nearly 20 years until he retired in 1965. Soon after, he established the Ocean Engineering Department at the University of Massachusetts. During his decades-long tenure at the University, he advocated for the advance of “grand scale” renewables to replace fossil fuel and nuclear energy, saying. “Renewable energy is mandatory for the future of mankind. Wind energy is one of the best sources, and the technology already exists to tap it.”
