Environmental Laws and Regulations Affecting US Offshore Wind
In a new edition of Pratt’s Energy Law Report, White & Case global environment & climate change partner Seth Kerschner and associate Brittany Curcuru provide an overview of the federal environmental regulations that proponents of offshore wind may have to navigate to get projects approved, built, launched—and eventually, decommissioned.
The team said, “The Biden administration has signaled strong support for renewables, including wind. The Interior, Energy and Commerce departments announced a shared goal to deploy at least 30 gigawatts (GWs) of offshore wind in the United States by 2030. As part of that resolution, BOEM intends to hold new lease sales and ﬁnalize the review of at least 16 Construction and Operations Plans for wind development, which could bring more than 19 GWs of wind capacity online by 2025.”
