New York State is leading the nation with its goal to develop 9,000MW of offshore wind by 2035, which is critical to meeting its aggressive goal of 70 percent renewable electricity by 2030. Albany, New York and the Capital Region are becoming a national hub for offshore wind manufacturing. 

Home to New York’s northern-most, year-round seaport with critical rail connections and located at the nexus of Interstates 87 and 90, the region provides strategic access to multi-state supply chains. New York’s Capital Region has the manufacturing capability, port infrastructure, R&D assets, adaptable workforce, and sites to support the offshore wind industry.
