University of Delaware (UDEL), College of Marine and Earth Studies (CMES)
Creator/Author: 
University of Delaware (UDEL), College of Marine and Earth Studies (CMES)
Description: 

This paper assesses the Delaware offshore wind energy resource through three elements: a mapping model (examining the developable offshore area out to 60 km), a valuation model (translating historical buoy records of wind data into electricity production and corresponding real world spot prices), and a business development model (analyzing the value of this electricity in light of detailed development cost estimates). It also summarizes potential impacts to marine wildlife in the Delaware area from potential offshore wind project construction and operation.

Description: 

The report estimates the direct, indirect, and induced economic effects of the manufacture, installation, and operation of a 480 MW offshore wind farm off the coast of South Carolina. During the two-year construction phase, the equivalent of up to 1,881 full-time jobs could be created, with an increase of $287 million in annual state economic output, $2.8 million in state income tax returns, and $190,000 in corporate income tax revenues. Annual state output could increase by up to $15 million in the operational phase, creating up to 155 full-time jobs, $200,000 in state income tax revenues and $14,000 in corporate income tax revenues.
