DOE Announces $13.5 Million for Sustainable Development of Offshore Wind

Jan. 19, 2022

The U.S. Department of Energy announced $13.5 million in funding to provide critical environmental and wildlife data to support offshore wind development. In support of a joint interagency goal to develop 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030, the U.S. Department of Energy is funding four projects that will inform offshore wind siting, permitting and help protect wildlife and fisheries as offshore wind deployment increases. This latest funding announcement aligns with President Biden’s agenda to catalyze offshore wind energy, strengthen the domestic supply chain, and create good-paying, union jobs.
