    Business Network Applauds Federal-State Partnership to Unlock Offshore Wind Industry, Supply Chain

    June 24, 2022 - Targeted News Service


      BALTIMORE, Maryland, June 24 (TNSreact) -- The Business Network for Offshore Wind, an organization that expands the adoption of offshore wind energy, issued the following news release on June 23, 2022:

      The Business Network for Offshore Wind today joined President Joe Biden, Administration officials including White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, and Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, 11 East Coast Governors, AFL-CIO Chair Liz Shuler, and industry leaders at the White House to launch a new state-federal partnership to accelerate offshore wind deployment.

      The new Federal-State Offshore Wind Implementation Partnership is a powerful collaborative effort to identify and address supply chain, workforce, and port constraints and build a robust domestic supply chain. During today's event, Business Network CEO Liz Burdock presented data showing that the U.S. offshore wind industry has already generated $12.7 billion in new public and private investments and has spurred the construction or expansion of nearly a dozen manufacturing facilities along the U.S. coast. The Network's Market Dashboard contract database has identified a 165 percent growth in contracts since January 2021.

      The following statement can be attributed to Liz Burdock, CEO and founder of the Business Network for Offshore Wind, a non-profit focused solely on developing the offshore wind industry and its supply chain:

      "This federal-state offshore partnership is a critical step towards unlocking supply chain growth and helping the industry scale to keep pace with demand, and will generate new opportunities for the thousands of small businesses that will form the backbone of the U.S. offshore wind industry. The Biden-Harris Administration's 30 GW goal, strong leadership from Governors, and more than $12 billion in new investments is creating a once-in-a-generation opportunity for American businesses. Along our coasts, the supply chain is coming to life with new manufacturing facilities, ports being rebuilt, and shipbuilding activity. Offshore wind contracts have more than doubled in the past 18 months and U.S. companies large and small are signing up from 46 states to participate in the offshore wind supply chain. With global demand growing exponentially, we need to accelerate this progress to reach our clean energy goals.

      "The Network is proud to partner with the federal government on developing an offshore wind supply chain roadmap and work with our state partners to help build a robust, local supply chain."
