Today the U.S. Department of Energy announced it is joining a new partnership to grow a U.S.-based supply chain for the burgeoning offshore wind industry. The Federal-State Offshore Wind Implementation Partnership is a joint effort launched by the White House National Climate Advisor, the Secretaries of the Interior, Energy, Commerce and Transportation, and governors of 11 East Coast states. The partnership highlights ongoing DOE efforts and commitment work alongside states and industry to provide a roadmap that identifies key pathways for meeting state and federal offshore wind goals.
