Clean Energy States Alliance, in conjunction with Douglas-Westwood and the US Offshore Wind Collaborative, analyzed supply chain development opportunities in 24 coastal states. The materials on this page, broken down by state, provide detailed information on policies, tax credits, and other incentives for offshore wind businesses. These materials were developed with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy through a contract with Douglas-Westwood.*

The information in the profiles was reviewed by representatives of the states during the summer of 2012. The first section in each profile on the advantage of that state represents the perspective of the state. In addition, five states – Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Virginia – prepared case studies for offshore wind businesses’ consideration.
