Oregon’s current generation power mix includes hydroelectric power, natural gas, onshore wind, coal, and other small generation sources. Although the state meets its current Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) compliance criteria, the prospect of offshore wind in Oregon and floating wind is rapidly evolving—both technically and commercially—to provide a carbon-free alternative energy source.
For companies seeking to success in Oregon’s upcoming offshore wind auction, DNV tapped into their global and local expertise to identify permitting and technical opportunities and challenges. Their insights come from 125 years of helping clients safely and economically develop offshore energy projects and, recently, their involvement in California’s 2022 offshore wind auction.
