Offshore wind develptment in the USA
Leading innovation to drive offshore wind energy in the US
The depth of the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of the US makes it difficult to develop wind power. But a solution is emerging: entry into floating offshore wind technology, which has the potential for 58% of US wind resources.

Progress in the United States
A safe bet to boost renewables
Just as the Iberdrola group pioneered the development of onshore wind power more than two decades ago, the company is now leading the development of offshore wind power, one of the keys to the company's growth, on which it began its commitment 15 years ago.
The commitment to offshore wind will be strengthened in the coming years. To this end, Iberdrola has a project portfolio of more than 43,000 MW, of which almost 30,000 MW -67 % of the total- correspond to offshore developments.
In this way, the group confirms its global leadership in this technology. Focused on countries with ambitious renewable targets, the company has projects in Germany, Japan, Sweden, Ireland, Poland, Taiwan and the Philippines. It also has initiatives in the United States and the United Kingdom.
