Offshore windmill with report


Connecticut’s Offshore Wind Strategic Roadmap summarizes Connecticut’s strengths, commitments and investments in clean energy and offshore wind and identifies initiatives and actions to support sustainable and equitable economic development of the industry statewide.

To support the execution of the initiatives and actions outlined in the Roadmap, Connecticut launched the Connecticut Wind Collaborative (CWC) — a nonprofit 501(c)(3), that will advance the offshore wind industry in Connecticut by convening leaders from across the industry to foster collaboration within the state and across the region.
