Wind Energy FAQs: Maps

East Coast Offshore Wind Sites

Looking for an accurate, up-to-date map of offshore wind current and future sites along the eastern seaboard?

Here is a great one released by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management in July 2020. It is quite ‘busy’ as it contains information both on awarded leases and ‘wind energy areas’ and ‘call areas’ in other words – zones which BOEM has provisionally identified as being suitable for offshore wind and which it may lease in the future.

The Department of Energy also has an excellent online interactive map of all operational on- and off-shore US wind turbines.
