US Offshore Wind Development: 2021 Year in Review and Looking Ahead


Offshore wind is an energy generation source that has seen explosive global growth over the past decade. The offshore wind industry in the US has been developing at a more measured pace but had a landmark year in 2021, and we expect the same for 2022. Our Year in Review highlights the major US offshore wind energy milestones in 2021, the offshore wind projects that are underway and the status of state incentive programs.

At Mayer Brown, we are proud of the breadth of our renewable energy practice and the role we are playing in helping clients around the world turn their clean power goals and projects into a reality. Mayer Brown’s Global Projects & Infrastructure team has an unmatched depth of offshore wind experience that spans developer, investor and lender representation for regulatory risk analysis, permitting, and through all types of transactional structures. Our focus now is on helping you meet your renewable energy objectives for 2022 and beyond. If there is anything that we can do to advance toward those goals, please do not hesitate to reach out.
