In ReNew’s ‘North Carolina sizes up offshore potential‘ covers the announcement that we will be leading the team that will help the North Carolina Department of Commerce research and develop an inventory of businesses, organizations, and physical infrastructure best positioned to promote offshore wind development in North Carolina.

The North Carolina offshore wind supply chain and infrastructure report will help identify and explain the nature of the existing businesses, organizations, and infrastructure in the state that can support the growing offshore wind industry.

The report will show how North Carolina can position itself to compete, as well as pinpoint the state’s advantages for key offshore wind industry segments such as blades, towers, nacelles, substation manufacturing and related equipment manufacturing, as well as project management and development, and construction staging.

The team of experts that will work on the North Carolina assessment also includes representatives from Lloyds Register Energy Americas, Timmons Group, and North Carolina State University.

The move is the latest step in Governor Roy Cooper’s efforts to build a clean energy economy to fight climate change and grow clean-energy jobs in North Carolina.
