Offshore Wind Hub

The Offshore Wind Hub collects all major reports, laws, environmental assessments, and other documents related to offshore wind policy, technology, economics, and siting in the Atlantic Coast states. The site offers open access to hundreds of documents. You can search  by state, topic, or key words. The listings are updated regularly for the individual states, but the listings for the federal government are not necessarily complete.

The Offshore Wind Hub was a project of the Northeast Wind Resource Center. It was managed by Clean Energy Group, with participation by the Business Network for Offshore Wind and the Maine Ocean & Wind Industry Initiative. The U.S. Department of Energy and the John Merck Fund provide partial funding for the Offshore Wind Hub. The U.S. Offshore Wind Collaborative created the Offshore Wind Hub in 2012.
