 U.S. Commercial Service & WAB e.V. invite you to a briefing:

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.
