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.

Recent record offtake agreements and turbine orders in New Jersey and New York are critical steps towards expanding offshore wind in the North Eastern seaboard. US offshore wind has massive potential. The BOEM (Bureau Ocean Energy Management) has identified and leased 16 Offshore wind energy Areas for development along the East coast, representing 21 GW of potential power generation.
