The Biden-Harris Administration has set a target for the US to install 15 GW of floating offshore wind capacity by 2035.

Bringing floating offshore wind technology to scale will unlock new opportunities for offshore wind power off the coasts of California and Oregon, in the Gulf of Maine, and beyond, according to a press release from the White House.

The new target for floating wind is said to spur billions of dollars of economic opportunities and avoid an estimated 26 million tonnes of carbon emissions annually, with the 15 GW producing enough clean energy to power over five million households.

The 30 GW that the administration set as a 2030 target for offshore wind are enough to power 10 million US homes.
