Wind Energy – U.S.A.
New York City will be transforming a major warehousing and manufacturing port into a hub for offshore wind production, Mayor Eric Adams announced on Thursday.
The wind farm, to be built at the city-owned South Brooklyn Marine Terminal, will be one of the largest offshore wind port facilities in America, according to the New York City Economic Development Corporation.
Construction of the site will help achieve New York’s goal of producing 100 percent clean electricity by 2040.
“With this investment, the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal will soon be transformed into one of the largest offshore wind port facilities in the nation,” Adams said in a statement, noting that offshore wind in New York is expected to support 13,000 local jobs and generate $1.3 billion in average annual investment.
“This is a transformative moment for New York City and our clean energy future — a future of sustainable power, good-paying jobs, and climate justice,” Adams added.
