Wind Energy – U.S.A.
Following the success of their joint bid in the New York Bight offshore lease auction last month, RWE Renewables and National Grid today announced the official name of their joint venture, Community Offshore Wind.
The name reflects the benefits it will bring to local communities, with the tagline, ‘Local clean energy for all.’
“Our success with National Grid in the recent auction signals the start of our commitment to building a network of trust in the local communities,” said Sam Eaton, RWE Executive Vice President, Offshore Development Americas. “We look forward to building our offshore business in the U.S., creating opportunities to deliver clean energy, good local jobs and private investment.”
Community Offshore Wind is committed to delivering sustainable energy safely, reliably and efficiently to the communities we serve. It is important that everyone enjoys the benefits of the clean energy transition. It is the JV partner’s goal to build strong sustainable communities for the future.
“National Grid is deeply committed to the communities where we live and work,” said Will Hazelip, Vice President of National Grid Ventures. “This name for our offshore wind joint venture with RWE reflects that focus, and it reminds us each day that we’re here to responsibly develop projects that account for the needs of all of our stakeholder communities.”
