The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) announced the support for the Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunities Act.

NOIA President Randall Luthi submitted a letter in support Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunities Act, ahead of House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources hearing, Building a 21st Century American Offshore Wind Workforce.

"I want to share the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) support for the Offshore Wind Jobs and Opportunities Act. We agree with the sponsors of this legislation that the coming offshore wind energy boom in the U.S. will need a skilled workforce trained and capable of operating in the unique offshore environment," Randall Luthi said.

He added: "Throughout the United States there are workers who are skilled, but they will require specific training and expertise to work offshore supporting the rapidly expanding wind industry."

The Special Initiative on Offshore Wind is an independent project at the University of Delaware's College of Earth, the East Coast potential for offshore wind power is estimated to be more than 1,300 gigawatts of electricity generation to the East Coast - enough to power 85 million American homes and reduce carbon pollution by the equivalent of taking over 100 million cars off the road.

The Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW) quantifies the extensive supply chain business opportunities this $70 billion CAPEX is creating to build out the U.S. offshore wind sector between now and 2030, with quantification broken down by industry component, by state, and by year through 2030.
