The state of New Jersey remains committed to realizing 3,500 MW of offshore wind energy by 2030, stated New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy at this year’s International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum (IPF) 2018. He also said he’d like to see New Jersey powered by 100% clean energy by 2050.
The event, which took place April 3 to 6 in New Jersey, drew more than 700 attendees who gave Murphy a standing ovation as he gave the keynote speech for this year’s conference. Murphy also used his speech to announce that offshore wind developer and holder of a large lease off the coast of New Jersey Ørsted will be opening their first New Jersey state office in Atlantic City in April. The company’s proposed ocean wind project involves erecting wind turbines about 10 miles off the Atlantic City coast.
