NewEnergyNews: Liftoff For U.S. Offshore Wind


Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Liftoff For U.S. Offshore Wind

    Winding Up; Could Offshore Turbines Be The Next Big Breakthrough In Renewable Energy?

    Graham Vyse, November 2018 (Governing)

    “…Decades of manufacturing job losses and the Great Recession left [Rhode Island’s] economy decimated…[and, in 2013, it had] the highest unemployment rate in the country…[but the first U.S. offshore wind project, Block Island, went online there in late 2016 and it has hired Deepwater Wind to construct another 400-megawatt project in federal waters. Connecticut has joined that project, adding 200 megawatts. Massachusett will build] 1,600 megawatts from offshore wind by 2027…[New York is committed to] 2,400 megawatts of offshore wind by 2030…[New Jersey’s goal is 3,500 megawatts by the same deadline. Now Massachusetts has increased its commitment to 3,200 megawatts by 2035…

    This is really a moment for commercial liftoff for offshore wind…[according to Stephanie McClellan, director of the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative on Offshore Wind]…Last year, [wind] contributed to 6 percent of the nation’s electricity supply. But virtually all of that came from landside turbines…Offshore boosters point to Europe, where the scale of the industry has driven prices down significantly over the last decade. The technology required for turbines in the water has been refined and new wind producing techniques are being adopted…[Offshore wind is built with many of the same technologies used by the oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico, which makes it a] a diversification opportunity…” click here for more
