Keynote: State of the American offshore wind industry
06 Apr 2022
PCB Future Projects Main Stage
The US offshore wind industry is currently taking off in the US. Currently, we have seven turbines and 42 megawatts of offshore wind generating electricity, but state and federal goals are aiming to deploy hundreds of turbines and 30,000 megawatts by the end of the decade. This ambition will create up to 83,000 jobs and 25 billion dollars in annual economic output. Offshore wind leases have been secured up and down the east coast but more is soon to come off the coast of California and the Gulf. Listen to this session to learn about the rapidly growing offshore wind industry and how it will provide a new source of clean, homegrown renewable energy.
