Atkins and law firm K&L Gates have released an Offshore Wind Market Handbook to help guide investors through technical and regulatory issues in the emerging US offshore wind market.
Regulatory issues include a discussion of the interplay between US federal jurisdiction and the various coastal states that have enacted laws and regulations encouraging offshore wind projects. Technical issues include turbine and foundation options and solutions, performance assurance strategies and a discussion of innovations in design and equipment that are particularly suited to US coastal waters. The K&L Gates renewable energy practice combines European project experience with US regulatory and project development expertise.
