Environmental News from the US:
The Biden administration is partnering with 11 East Coast states to accelerate the development of offshore wind facilities and create jobs by supporting a domestic supply chain for the industry, the White House said on Thursday.
The move is part of President Joe Biden’s push to fight climate change by expanding clean energy technologies. That agenda has been weighed down recently by rising prices, particularly for gasoline.
Offshore wind is a major component of that strategy. The administration has set a goal of reaching 30 gigawatts of capacity by 2030, up from just 42 megawatts currently with two small projects.
“The partnership will support efforts to provide Americans with cleaner and cheaper energy, create good-paying jobs, and make historic investments in new American energy supply chains, manufacturing, shipbuilding, and servicing,” the White House said in a statement.
