A solid offshore wind industry offers great potential and benefit to the United States. In fact, according to the Department of Energy (DOE), if the country could develop 86 GW of offshore wind by 2050, it would create at least 120,000 jobs, cut greenhouse-gas emissions by 2.8%, and provide American with much-needed clean energy. The DOE is stepping up and putting money where its mouth is by offering $18.5 million in funding for an offshore wind research and development consortium that will conduct U.S.-specific research aimed at reducing costs.
