Multiple challenges stand between the US offshore wind industry and success. Limited supply chain capacity, questions around economic viability, Jones Act compliance and required transmission upgrades, to name but a few. It is no wonder that with an ambitious goal of 30GW by 2030 many already think the road to success has been paved with failure.

However, we firmly believe that through our newly formed partnership with Daymark Energy Advisors we have the making of a partnership that can be pivotal in solving some of these key industry challenges

The US needs a successful offshore wind industry to make sure it is prepared for a sustainable future that benefits regional economies, generates quality employment, and has minimal negative impact on the environment with long-term economic viability front and centre. To enable the sector to quickly deploy and scale then we need big-picture thinking, strategic collaboration and deliberate upfront investments in infrastructure.

Working together will allow both organisations to leverage each other’s expertise to drive innovation and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable energy future while allowing them to efficiently answers the key questions developers and state agencies have.
