NOIA Applauds New Offshore Wind Consortium & Office

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) strongly supports the responsible development of all offshore energy sources and applauds the announcement by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar of the establishment of both the Atlantic Offshore Wind Energy Consortium and the new Atlantic Offshore Renewable Energy Office in Virginia. 
 
“All forms of energy are important to our economic and energy security,” said NOIA President Randall Luthi.  “Future energy development on the Outer Continental Shelf, whether it be wind, wave, ocean current, solar, or conventional oil and natural gas will further diversify the nation's energy sources while generating new jobs for Americans, and reducing our dependence on foreign energy sources.”
 
The NOIA membership includes Cape Wind, which on April 28, 2010 received the first ever DOI approval for an offshore wind farm.  Other NOIA member companies include those who are positioned to provide essential services to future offshore energy projects.
