Description: 

In order to seize emerging offshore wind opportunities, the United States Department of the Interior (DOI), and the participating states enter into this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to facilitate Federal-state cooperation and coordination for the efficient, expeditious, orderly, and responsible development of the significant wind resources of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) along the Atlantic coast through collaborative efforts on issues of mutual interest. This partnership serves as the first step toward a goal of broader collaboration and coordinated effort among the Atlantic states and other relevant Federal Agencies that are critical to the development of the offshore wind industry.

Description: 

This report uses the offshore wind Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (JEDI) model and provides four case studies of potential offshore wind deployment scenarios in different regions of the United States: the Southeast, the Great Lakes, the Gulf Coast, and the Mid-Atlantic. Researchers worked with developers and industry representatives in each region to create potential offshore wind deployment and supply chain growth scenarios, specific to their locations. These scenarios were used as inputs into the offshore JEDI model to estimate jobs and other gross economic impacts in each region.
