Empowering the East Coast

More than dozen offshore wind projects are in advanced stages of planning on the East Coast of the United States. The federal government has set a national goal to produce 30,000 megawatts of energy by 2030. With development of Dominion Energy’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project and Avangrid Renewables’ Kitty Hawk Offshore Wind project, Hampton Roads, Virginia is now on a trajectory to lead offshore wind development in the U.S. 

An Ideal Location

Nearly a million skilled workers call Hampton Roads home. With thousands of active duty military stationed in the region, over 15,000 personnel exit the service locally.

Hampton Roads houses the largest percentage of the US maritime workforce, the largest shipbuilding and ship repair market, and unmatched resources for construction and maintenance of vessels and marine infrastructure.

The Hampton Roads region is connected by one of the nation’s most modern highway systems, two international airports, and one of the deepest sea ports on the east coast.

Virginia is a leader in renewable power through commitments to the Virginia Clean Economy Act, legislation that sets renewable portfolio standards and promotes the development of offshore wind.

Virginia's ports have congestion-free channels, no overhead obstructions, deep water, short travel time to open sea, and the ability to handle any type of cargo.

A variety of industrial sites can be found in Virginia, including some ranked among the most highly-suited in the country for turbine, blade, and foundation construction. 

Virginia's terminal facilities have direct access to sea with no overhead obstacles to impede the shipping of large and upright infrastructure and components.

Year-over-year, Virginia has been ranked among the top states for business, as hailed by both Forbes and CNBC.
