Biden Aims to Dramatically Boost Offshore Wind Generation in the Atlantic

A moment that has been long-awaited by offshore wind power developers arrived Monday when the Biden administration announced efforts designed to lead to the construction of as much as 30,000 megawatts (MW) of new offshore wind power in the Atlantic Ocean by 2030. That level of construction activity would also strengthen the U.S. offshore wind power supply chain and create many good-paying union jobs, according to the administration.

Monday's announcement is separate from a plan, expected to be unveiled by President Joe Biden on Wednesday, to rebuild America's infrastructure with a pivot to clean energy, at an expected cost of $3 trillion to $4 trillion.
