US: Industry points to broader effects of Vineyard Wind 1 permitting decisions

If the approval of the U.S. Vineyard Wind 1 offshore wind farm is further delayed, or if the project’s permitting process ends up with a rejection, the industry could take it as a signal to pour its offshore wind money in Europe and Asia, according to comments submitted to the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) on the recently issued Supplement to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the project.

The offshore wind project already encountered a delay in its permitting process, affecting its planned construction timeline.

BOEM was scheduled to release the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) in August 2019. However, a month before that the authority said the FEIS would be postponed and, the following month, asked for a supplemental EIS.
