Potential Economic Impacts from Offshore Wind in the United States-The Southeast Region

Potential Economic Impacts from Offshore Wind in the United States-The Southeast Region

Date: 10/22/2013

The Virginia Center for Wind Energy at James Madison University, supported by DOE and NREL, performed a study that applied the new offshore Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (JEDI) model to estimate the economic impacts associated with potential offshore wind power development off the coasts of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. The Southeast region presents an ample wind resource in waters beyond 12 miles from the coast. Wind Systems published an article that summarizes the study. This study and similar studies from other regions will be the subject of the November Stakeholder Engagement and Outreach webinar.
