Interior Adds Clarity to the American Offshore Wind Future

Washington, D.C. – National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) President Erik Milito released the following statement after the U.S. Department of the Interior outlined a schedule under which it could hold as many as seven offshore wind lease sales by 2025:

“A successful American offshore wind future needs clarity around the leasing schedule and Interior's outline of potential wind lease sales through 2025 helps provide that. Providing a reliable and predictable road map of offshore wind opportunities will help boost critical investments into the supply chain, ports, and workers. NOIA applauds Interior for helping to provide greater clarity as to where and when future offshore wind leases may be held."
