The U.S. Attempts to Accelerate Offshore Wind Development

The Department of Energy has awarded funding to New York, Maine, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts to increase offshore wind energy in the region. The group of state organizations will come up with a plan to ramp up offshore wind construction in the region with a priority on decreasing costs. This is one of 12 other projects funded by the Department of Energy and part of the White House’s initiative to increase offshore energy all over the country.
