The Biden administration has revealed a comprehensive “action plan” aimed at driving the development of offshore wind energy in the Atlantic. The plan’s objectives include accelerating the growth of offshore wind power, strengthening the domestic supply chain, and generating high-quality, union jobs.

Collaboratively announced by the Department of Energy and the Department of the Interior, the plan outlines immediate steps needed to connect the first wave of Atlantic offshore wind projects to the power grid, as well as long-term strategies to support future transmission requirements over the next several decades.

The plan is a key component of the Biden administration’s commitment to deploy 30 GW of offshore wind energy in the United States by 2030.

Since 2021, the United States has approved four large-scale offshore wind projects and is on track to review at least 16 additional project plans by 2025, representing a total capacity of 27 GW.

However, the offshore wind sector is grappling with significant challenges as costs continue to rise. Last week, the governors of six northeastern states issued a joint call for federal support to bolster the industry.
