MassCEC’s Offshore Wind strategy centers on accelerating the responsible development of offshore wind projects and increasing the role of Massachusetts companies, institutions, and workers in the offshore wind industry. Toward this goal, MassCEC is leading an array of initiatives and technical analyses in close collaboration with policy makers, regulators, developers, industry and stakeholders. These initiatives are designed to establish baseline environmental data to support the permitting process, reduce development and deployment risks, advance innovation, and increase jobs and economic activity in the offshore wind sector.

Massachusetts-Made Energy and Jobs
Offshore wind is the largest in-state source of clean energy for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Commonwealth has set an ambitious agenda to become the national hub for the emerging offshore wind industry along the East Coast. Offshore wind presents an opportunity to help the Commonwealth meet its GHG emission reduction mandate, address the retirement of aging power plants, provide economic development opportunities for Massachusetts businesses, and create thousands of jobs for Massachusetts residents.
