US offshore wind

The next decade will be a critical period for US offshore wind as it enters a phase of exponential growth and opportunity. President Biden’s target to deploy 30GW of offshore wind power by 2030 could create up to 77,000 local, highly-skilled American jobs.

Since 2018 our Wind team has successfully placed over 100 contract and permanent offshore wind specialists into US projects with some of the largest players in the industry.

The US renewable energy industry

At the close of 2019 there were 14 US offshore wind projects representing north of 11GW of generation in pre-construction planning stages.  There are five additional projects in site assessment stage which will account for more than 7GW of generation.

For context, the UK is the world leader with around 9GW of installed capacity.  The addition of 4GW within the next 4-5 years in the US, is a significant undertaking.  In terms of growth, the US is likely to become one of the top 3 global markets in the next decade.  Further, there is now a pipeline of around 22GW in total leases that have been consented.
