How live, accurate forecasting boosts Ørsted's offshore wind projects in the USA

Do you have a question or intrigued by how we support the offshore wind industry? Speak to one of our experts today.

Offshore wind is taking off in the USA, thanks in large part to the expansion of Danish offshore wind giant Ørsted into the US market. Ørsted’s US venture began with the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) pilot project in 2020. CVOW was constructed by Ørsted on behalf of Dominion Energy. The project was enabled in part through a collaboration with StormGeo.

The development of offshore wind in the US today looks a lot like it did in Europe a few decades ago. Responding to the pressures and public attention around climate change, governments in both parts of the world implemented green friendly energy policies.

While recent offshore wind projects in Europe compete with other energy sources without the need for government subsidies, this wasn’t always the case. As the US is experiencing now, the first offshore wind projects in Europe were mostly small demonstrations to showcase the industry’s potential.
