Securing the U.S. Supply Chain for the Wind Energy Industry

TheWind Energy Supply Chain Deep Dive Assessment finds that the U.S. wind supply chain is nascent for offshore wind and mature for land-based wind, but U.S. competitiveness is declining in key wind turbine components. Continued decarbonization of the U.S. grid and economy with domestically supplied wind technology will require innovation to increase U.S. manufacturing competitiveness; investment in logistics and infrastructure, such as offshore wind ports and vessels; and policies to provide a strong and stable demand signal to support accelerated investment in the wind supply chain.
