is Leading the Way in Offshore Wind
Connecticut is home to a burgeoning offshore wind industry, invigorated by the state’s commitment to achieve net-zero carbon electricity by 2040. This commitment to environmental protection and sustainability, combined with a rich history of advanced manufacturing, uniquely positions Connecticut to provide industry support services and serve as a launchpad for offshore wind projects throughout the Northeast.
Additionally, its location near several offshore lease areas and its unobstructed deep-water ports present a strategic opportunity to site wind turbine component assembly and fabrication facilities as the industry continues to grow in the state.
Connecticut’s ambitious climate policy includes reducing greenhouse gasses by 45% by 2030 and achieving net zero carbon electricity by 2040.
