Advancing Offshore Wind Development Along the East Coast

As federal policies rapidly develop to encourage and expand the use of renewable energy, offshore wind developers are competing to meet the ambitious clean energy goals of eastern states. The complexity of federal, state, and local regulations requires the ability to navigate dynamic permitting requirements in this competitive market, as well as a thoughtful approach to addressing stakeholder concerns.

VHB is committed to a clean energy future and has been involved in many of the earliest U.S. offshore wind projects. Our team of experienced offshore wind professionals partners with developers, local and state regulators, and trade organizations to provide leading-edge industry guidance. Our integrated services approach considers a project’s full lifecycle from project planning through post-construction monitoring while developing and implementing strategic, data-driven solutions that streamline the process. We work as an extension of our clients’ teams to address land use issues, infrastructure challenges, and complex regulatory specifications.

VHB delivers many offshore wind services including site selection, assessment, construction and operations plan development, permitting, outreach, interconnection planning, supply chain support.
