On U.S. East Coast, Has Offshore Wind’s Moment Finally Arrived?
After years of debate and public engagement, the American offshore wind sector looks poised to finally start ramping up. While Europe and Asia are ahead of the U.S. on offshore wind deployment, many companies are optimistic about the American market, especially regions off the East Coast that boast strong and steady winds and proximity to major cities to consume the power produced. With costs continuing to fall, the demand for more zero-carbon electricity growing rapidly, and support from state officials and the new Biden administration, the U.S. seems poised for its offshore wind moment.
