Opposition to wind turbines and farms will likely increase in the U.S. and worldwide until significant biological, environmental, and safety issues associated with them are resolved (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8). Regardless, the Biden Administration and other proponents seem only interested speeding up deployment and activation.
Biden administration launches federal-state offshore wind partnership
The Biden administration has created the Federal-State Offshore Wind Implementation Partnership – a forum that will work to develop an offshore wind supply chain roadmap.
The partnership will be led by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and include 11 East Coast governors as well as administration officials. The partnership will advance the industry's rapid development and help accelerate President Joe Biden's goal of 30GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030 and 100 percent clean electricity by 2035.
