Several U.S. states announced ambitious offshore wind capacity targets in recent years, along with programs to facilitate the achievement of these goals. The expected resulting addition of offshore wind facilities offers multiple economic and clean energy benefits.
The facilities may also introduce operating challenges to the U.S. power grid that demand consideration. In this white paper, our experts examine how growth in offshore wind capacity in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions could impact the current state of the power grid.
