The United States set a major renewable energy milestone last Tuesday: wind power was the second-highest source of electricity for the first time since the Energy Information Administration began gathering the data.
The nascent offshore wind industry in the U.S. must install at least 2,100 turbines and foundations in order to meet federal deployment targets, according to a report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory released on Monday.
Located in Wayne County, Nebraska, Haystack Wind utilizes existing interconnection infrastructure in Southwest Power Pool (SPP) North from Ørsted’s 230 MW onshore wind farm Plum Creek Wind, located nearby. Between the two projects, Ørsted has now invested over half a billion dollars in the state of Nebraska.
The new work led by environmental engineer Daniel Cohan and senior computer science major Richard Morse of Rice’s George R. Brown School of Engineering uses optimization modeling to identify the least-cost combinations of proposed wind and solar projects with the potential to replace coal-fired power generation in Texas.
As construction of the onshore portion of the South Fork Wind farm proceeds in Wainscott, a lawsuit filed in United States District Court last week seeks to halt that work, claiming its potential to spread the perfluorinated chemicals, known as PFAS, that were detected in nearby groundwater.
After days of bidding, six companies emerged as winners last week in a record-breaking auction for the rights to develop offshore wind in federal waters off New York and New Jersey.
Ørsted contractors last week took the first major work on the installation of the conduit that will eventually conceal the South Fork Wind power cable beneath Wainscott roadways — the same day a judge dismissed a lawsuit by residents that had challenged the agreements with East Hampton Town to allow the work.
The Biden’s administration’s sale of offshore wind development rights off the coasts of New York and New Jersey surged past all expectations on Thursday to reach more than $3.3 billion, with bidding still not complete.
The largest ever U.S. sale of offshore wind development rights – for areas off the coasts of New York and New Jersey – attracted a record $1.5 billion in bids on Wednesday, supporting President Joe Biden's plan to create a new domestic industry.
