Advancing Offshore Wind Energy in the U.S.

The United States can and should expand offshore wind infrastructure and pave the way for the reliable production of renewable energy close to major urban centers.

“With 40% of Americans living in coastal counties, harnessing offshore wind energy would allow the U.S. to generate energy near where demand is highest.”

The United States can and should expand offshore wind infrastructure and pave the way for the reliable production of renewable energy close to major urban centers.

Investing in offshore wind will create tens of thousands of jobs, including many union jobs, and hasten the transition to a clean energy economy. However, to date, the U.S. offshore wind industry has been slow to develop, in part due to protracted permitting processes, opposition from interest groups, and inadequate data and scientific studies on project impacts. Policymakers must address these challenges.. 

In order to harness the opportunities presented by offshore wind, we need to tackle current barriers with pragmatic solutions and advance policies that expand offshore wind, create jobs, and address environmental and stakeholder concerns.
