Biden to Push Offshore Wind Projects

The Wall Street Journal’s Timothy Puko reports that the Biden administration will accelerate leasing and reviews for offshore wind projects.

The C3 Take
  • While the Biden administration is taking a good first step in streamlining the permitting process of these turbines, it is still picking winners and losers.
  • If the Biden administration wants to unlock clean energy in America they should look to cut government red tape for all energy projects.
  • By streamlining the permitting and review process under laws such as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), we could reduce emissions and provide greater energy security.

“Monday’s announcement includes a goal for 30,000 megawatts of offshore wind by 2030, more than triple what the country is on pace for by 2026 if permits were issued without delay, according to trade group estimates.”
