Background Information on U.S. OSW Standards

The U.S. Offshore Wind Standards initiative is underway, a collaboration between the Department of Energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, the Business Network for Offshore Wind, and the American Wind Energy Association.

The anticipated outcome will be a new suite of consensus-based offshore wind standards and guidelines that will clarify the requirements for developers and original equipment manufacturers in U.S. waters and allow U.S. regulators to adopt best industry practices. For background information visit the AWEA Offshore Wind Subcommittee Workspace.
