ESN (dpa) – Energy companies RWE and National Grid are collaborating to expand their wind energy business in the United States. The two companies signed a partnership agreement to develop projects for offshore wind farms in the northeastern United States, as announced by RWE Renewables in Essen on Thursday. The two companies wish to bid in an offshore wind auction for sites in New York Bay.
National Grid is a British electricity and gas transmission network operator. In cooperation, RWE wants to expand its business using renewable energies. Sven Utermöhlen explained, “Although we are already a well-established player in the United States of America through our activities in the field of onshore wind, solar energy and storage, thanks to this partnership we can implement our plans to boost offshore wind activities in the country.” He works at RWE Renewables in charge of outside work.
The Northeastern USA is attractive for outdoor projects. She said New York State wants to bring offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 9,000 MW into the grid by 2035. RWE is currently very active in offshore projects, especially in the North Sea.
