Vineyard Wind's 800-MW Offshore Project Progressing (Ind. Report)
Vineyard Wind, BOEM
Date: 2021-05-14
Vineyard Wind reports receipt of the U.S. DOI Bureau of Ocean Energy Management's (BOEM) Record of Decision (ROD) -- the federal review process for the 800-MW, 160,000-acre offshore wind project 15 miles off the coast of Martha's Vineyard.

The project, which will incorporate as many as 84 GE Haliade-X wind turbines, will be the first commercial scale offshore wind farm in the country, according to Vineyard Wind -- a joint venture between AVANGRID subsidiary Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).

In response to comments and direct engagement with neighboring communities, environmental organizations and advocates, fisheries organizations, as well as governmental and tribal entities, the project has committed to: invest millions of dollars to develop and deploy innovative technologies and undertake scientific research to further safeguard marine mammals; to provide millions to compensate fishermen for potential loss of revenue and gear, as well as to enhance their ability to fish in and around the lease area; and use an Aircraft Detection Lighting System (ALDS) to ensure nighttime lights will only operate a few hours a year when aircraft are present.

Vineyard Wind expects the project will reach financial close in the second half of this year and begin delivering energy to Massachusetts in 2023.

    Date: 2019-10-07
    A new Offshore Wind California coalition of renewable energy companies is calling for the Golden State to commit to a goal of at least 10 GW of primarily floating offshore wind power in California waters by 2040.

    The group that counts Equinor and offshore engineering company Aker Solutions among its members notes that U.S. East Coast states have about 22 GW worth of offshore wind commitments and are projected to see an estimated $70 billion in related supply chain spending by 2030.

    The US DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) estimates California's potential for offshore wind at about 112 GW, including about 8.4 GW in three Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) designated study areas. NREL also notes that floating wind platforms are a basic requirement for most of the state's offshore waters, which are too deep to support monopile or multi-leg jackets.

    DOE Releases Annual Wind Market Reports (Ind. Report)
    US DOE
    Date: 2019-08-26
    The U.S. DOE has released annual market reports documenting data and trends in wind installations, technologies, costs, prices, and performance through the end of 2018 for three sectors: utility-scale land-based, offshore, and distributed wind.

    According to the report, the utility-scale Land-Based Wind Sector had another strong year with 7,588 MW installed during 2018, accompanied by record low costs and prices. The U.S. distributed wind sector now stands at 1,127 MW from over 83,000 wind turbines across all 50 states. And the U.S. offshore wind industry has a pipeline of 25,824 MW in various stages of development. The report found:

  • The U.S. wind industry installed 7,588 MW of capacity last year, bringing total utility-scale wind capacity to over 96 gigawatts (GW).

  • Wind industry employment is at an all-time high, supporting 114,000 jobs

  • In total, 41 states operated utility-scale wind projects -- Texas leads the nation with nearly 25 GW of wind capacity, while California, Iowa, Kansas, and Oklahoma have more than 5 GW.

  • Wind energy provides 6.5 pct of the nation's electricity, more than 10 pct of total generation in 14 states, and more than 30 pct in Iowa, Kansas, and Oklahoma.

  • The trend of installing wind turbines that are larger and more powerful continued in 2018 and the price of wind energy being sold in long-term contracts is at an all-time low.

    The 2018 Distributed Wind Market report highlights include:

  • Distributed wind power is used at or near where it is generated, as opposed to wind power from wholesale generation, where power is sent to consumers via transmission lines and substations.

  • Employed by households, schools, farms, industrial facilities, and municipalities, distributed wind doesn't only refer to small-scale turbines; it includes any size turbine or array of turbines that generates power for local or on-site use.

  • U.S. wind turbines in distributed applications reached a cumulative installed capacity of 1,127 MW in 2018. This capacity comes from over 83,000 turbines installed across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam.

  • The trend of using larger wind turbines in distributed applications continued in 2018. The average capacity of large-scale turbines installed in distributed applications in 2018 was 2.1 MW -- almost double the capacity of turbines used in 2003.

  • Commercial and industrial distributed wind projects increased in 2018, representing 29 pct of total project capacity. Distributed wind for utility customers remained the most prevalent use, representing 47 pct of capacity in 2018.

  • Of small wind turbines (100 kilowatts or less) deployed in the U.S., turbines of less than 1 kW are contributing an increasingly larger percentage of both the total number of turbines (99 pct) and capacity (47 pct) of small wind projects.

    The 2018 Offshore Wind Technologies Market Report found:

  • The U.S. offshore wind project development pipeline grew to a potential generating capacity of 25,824 MW across 13 states, including the Block Island Wind Farm commissioned in 2016.

  • Projects totaling 21,225 MW have exclusive site control -- a lease or other contract to develop the site. Most of these projects are on the Eastern seaboard, with one in the Great Lakes.

  • California and Hawaii have several early-stage floating offshore wind projects in the planning phase.

  • The DOI Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) auctions for three lease areas off the coast of Massachusetts brought in winning bids of $135 million indicating strong interest and confidence in the U.S. offshore wind market.

  • Offtake prices for the first commercial-scale U.S. offshore wind project -- Vineyard Wind off the coast of Massachusetts -- came in lower than expected at $65–$75 per MWh.

  • Technology trends toward larger turbines continued, with offshore turbines installed globally in 2018 averaging 5.5 MW, and turbines with capacities of 10- 12 MW coming to market in the next couple years.

  • BOEM Stalling Vineyard Wind Environmental Statement (Reg & Leg)
    Vineyard Wind,
    Date: 2019-08-12
    In the Bay State, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is reportedly stalling the release of a key environmental impact statement on Vineyard Wind's proposed wind farm off the coast of Massachusetts. The federal agency said the delay is in response to comments "from stakeholders and cooperating agencies" requesting a more robust cumulative analysis that would include projects that have been awarded power purchase agreements, but may not have submitted construction and operations plans. To that end, BOEM has decided to supplement the Draft EIS and solicit comments on its revised cumulative impacts analysis," according to an agency statement.

    Vineyard Wind urged the federal government to complete the project's review as quickly as possible and says the 84-turbine, 800-MW wind farm is key to a 2016 Massachusetts renewable energy law and remains viable.
