Biden Signs Executive Order to Double OSW by 2030

President Biden has signed an Executive Order that includes doubling offshore wind power generation in U.S. federal waters by 2030.

The order further directs the Department of Interior to conduct a full assessment of the siting processes that will align U.S. public lands and water management practices with Administration goals to advance renewable energy production. 

The Administration’s actions today also establish the White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy and create a federal government-wide task force that will coordinate actions between agencies. Overall, the order addresses job creation, infrastructure expansion, and was to alleviate climate change. The inclusion of offshore wind energy development in today’s order acknowledges the important role the industry will play in the administration’s renewable energy goals, which will drive investment, revitalize ports, and provide new, well-paying jobs for workers, particularly those in disadvantaged communities often affected by pollution.  

Liz Burdock, president and CEO of the Business Network for Offshore Wind:  

“President Biden’s actions confirm the critical role that offshore wind energy will play in creating a clean U.S. energy grid and achieving White House commitments to combat climate change. His call to double offshore wind production in U.S. federal waters sends a clear signal of support to our industry, which will generate billions in new investments. Over the next few years, the offshore wind industry will dramatically scale up development of the U.S. supply chain, growing tens of thousands of new jobs in the process. The offshore wind has been on the precipice of significant growth thanks to states’ bold leadership and President Biden’s executive order further pushes the industry to new heights with a new sense of urgency.”
