US identifies new offshore wind area in Gulf of Maine

The US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has identified a draft wind energy area (WEA) in the Gulf of Maine covering approximately 3,519,067 acres offshore Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

The Gulf of Maine has significant opportunities for offshore wind energy development and the identified area ranges from approximately 23–120 miles off the coast. Due to the deep waters within the Gulf, these areas are also an opportunity to accelerate the floating wind sector in the US.
