    Offshore and On: Collaborative Problem Solving in the US Wind Market

    Are onshore and offshore wind supply chain logistics distinct disciplines apart from ocean transport, or are there synergies and overlaps that could be better understood and exploited? In the US, a nascent offshore wind energy buildout is drawing attention and investment, thanks largely to the Biden administration's commitment to installing 30 gigawatts of wind power by 2030. As of now, however, only 42 megawatts have been installed in US waters. Onshore wind, a far more mature industry, reached 134 gigawatts installed as of the end 2021, with 12.7 gigawatts added in 2021 alone. Offshore wind has the potential to sop up onshore wind's previous port, terminal, and barge capacity, even as cutting-edge blade technology could simplify onshore logistics within a few years. To some, a real-world ability to meet the 2030 offshore goal is tenuous at best, while both sides are frustrated by a lack of direction from regulators. This session will analyze the outlook, pain points, and opportunities for synergy — or not — within what one executive refers to as offshore and onshore’s "symbiotic" relationship.
