Included here, in a searchable database, are all of our news articles for the last two years.

Use the search filter to select news items by date, by state, by category and also by a specific search term – e.g. “FERC” or “Ørsted”.

For the ‘category’ search: We have divided news items into one (or sometimes more) of three categories.
1. State.  If the news refers to a single state only, this category applies
2. Offshore. If the news relates to the entire offshore sector, for instance BOEM announcing a new leasing round, it is filed under this category
3. Policy.  Where the item doesn’t relate directly to either a state or to the offshore sector (for instance tariffs on wind components or a FERC decision) it is filed under policy
