Department of Energy and Department of the Interior Announce Major Offshore Wind Strategy

Date: 2/7/2011

On February 7, 2011, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced major components of a coordinated strategic plan to accelerate the development of offshore wind energy in U.S. waters. The joint National Offshore Wind Strategy: Creating an Offshore Wind Industry in the United StatesPDF is the first-ever interagency plan for offshore wind energy, and it demonstrates a strong federal commitment to developing the nation's offshore wind energy resources in a way that reduces conflict with other ocean uses and resources. The plan focuses on two major objectives: reducing the cost of offshore wind energy and reducing the timeline for deploying offshore wind systems.
