Unleashing the Potential of Offshore Wind

Large-scale deployment of offshore wind has emerged as a significant energy resource. Turbines are being installed farther and farther offshore, where visual impacts (a frequent impediment to wind development) are reduced and winds are stronger and steadier. A recent Berkeley Lab study states that the total value in the Northeastern U.S. of potential offshore wind projects exceeds that of land-based wind. More>
