The USA has a rapidly growing offshore wind sector and its shores possess a power potential of more than double the nation's current electricity use. This represents a significant opportunity for UK companies to export their products and expertise.

US Offshore Wind is poised for exponential growth, with New England and New Jersey prominent in this development. North East states and the US Department of the Interior have shown commitment to paving the way for additional offshore
wind lease areas and this will transform current potential into a long-term and integral component of the USA’s energy policy. In addition to providing clean, affordable, and reliable power, the American Wind Energy Association estimates
that developing 30,000 megawatts (MW) of offshore wind along the East Coast could support up to 83,000 jobs and deliver $25 billion in annual economic output by 2030.

We are pleased to offer businesses in the offshore energy supply chain that are based in the Northern Powerhouse region, the opportunity to join our virtual mission focusing on the North Eastern region of the USA.

What’s on offer?

Delegates will join a virtual trade mission to find out more about the growing offshore wind sector in North Eastern US States.
• Access to a series of webinars delivered by specialist speakers, innovation hubs, key players in the market, and country experts
• Get market and sector briefings and intelligence
• Evaluate if the US market is right for your business before investing more time and resource

Express your interest to join the virtual mission now and discover how this exciting market opportunity could help your growth. An in-person delegation in the Summer/Autumn of 2021 is expected to follow (depending on travel regulations).
