The U.S. Offshore Wind & Green Hydrogen Climate:
Opportunities for German Companies in the U.S. Market
June 14th from 15:30 – 17:00 Central Europe Time
The U.S. is now more committed than ever to the development of offshore wind energy: U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo announced two new initiatives that will advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s clean energy goals by harnessing the economic potential of offshore wind power generation to combat the climate crisis and create more clean energy jobs.
The Commerce Department, along with the Departments of Interior and Energy, are announcing a shared goal to deploy 30 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind in the United States by 2030, while protecting biodiversity and promoting ocean co-use. Meeting this target will trigger more than $12 billion per year in capital investment in projects on both U.S. coasts. It will also generate enough power to meet the demand of more than 10 million American homes for a year and avoid 78 million metric tons of CO2 emissions.
Hear from industry and Department of Commerce specialists about the overview, outlook, and trends in U.S. offshore wind and green hydrogen.
