Description: 

Land-based and offshore wind are expected to be a cornerstone for achieving U.S. clean electricity generation objectives, including 100% clean electricity by 2035 and an 30 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind by 2030. Meeting these goals will require significant expansion of domestic supply chains and installation of unprecedented amounts of wind capacity. To meet this challenge, researchers compiled a report examining the U.S. land-based and offshore wind energy supply chain, including raw materials, processed materials, components, sub-components, and recycling.

US Department of Energy
Description: 

On January 27, 2021, the Biden Administration issued Executive Order 14008 (“Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad” 2021), which established a target of achieving 100% carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035 and net zero greenhouse gas emissions economy-wide by no later than 2050 (The White House 2021c). Achieving these goals is expected to require deploying several clean energy technologies at a rapidly increasing scale. A subsequent Executive Order 14017 on America’s Supply Chains directs the Secretary of Energy to submit a supply chain overview report for the Energy Sector Industrial Base. A cross-DOE team led by the Office of Policy was tasked with reviewing key technology supply chains and determining actionable policy steps to enable the United States to meet its domestic demand for these critical technologies within five years while also considering environmental justice and impacts on underserved communities(The White House 2021a).

Securing the U.S. Supply Chain for the Wind Energy Industry

Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Creator/Author: 
Wind Energy Technologies Office
Description: 

The Wind Energy Supply Chain Deep Dive Assessment finds that the U.S. wind supply chain is nascent for offshore wind and mature for land-based wind, but U.S. competitiveness is declining in key wind turbine components. Continued decarbonization of the U.S. grid and economy with domestically supplied wind technology will require innovation to increase U.S. manufacturing competitiveness; investment in logistics and infrastructure, such as offshore wind ports and vessels; and policies to provide a strong and stable demand signal to support accelerated investment in the wind supply chain.
