The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center released the 2018 Massachusetts Offshore Wind Workforce Assessment, which examines the workforce needs and economic impact of the emerging offshore wind industry.

This report presents the results of a comprehensive workforce and economic analysis that estimates the labor needs and economic impacts associated with the planning, construction, and maintenance of offshore wind (OSW) energy in the Massachusetts and Rhode Island/Massachusetts Wind Energy Areas (WEAs). Informed by the experience of the OSW industry’s emergence in Europe, dozens of in-depth interviews, and a detailed economic analysis, this report is designed to provide state and regional policymakers with actionable recommendations they can use to maximize the economic benefits of the emerging OSW industry for Massachusetts, its communities, and its workforce.
