With $100 Billion in economic investment and 80,000 jobs in play with the US offshore wind industry, what is the opportunity for North Carolina? As the state’s economy begins to rebuild, offshore wind development with its potential for a localized supply chain, can be a path forward in creating new opportunities for investment while supporting our state’s existing manufacturing strengths.

Dept. of Commerce’s offshore wind supply chain and infrastructure study as well as economic development leaders about the opportunity ahead for North Carolina and how the state can benefit from offshore wind development and the vast supply chain needed to support it.
