U.S. offshore wind permitting: the SAP. the COP, and the regulatory process in between
In this article, we deliver an overview of the U.S. permitting regime and our insight regarding the Construction and Operations Plan (COP), some of the associated challenges and potential solutions.
Understanding the Project Design Envelope - U.S. offshore wind permitting
Submitted as part of a COP, a project design envelope allows lessees to outline a range of design parameters for their project. Adoption of this approach is optional, but the advantages make it well worth a developer’s time, effort, and investment!
U.S. offshore wind: Theory through to practice
As the size, complexity, and importantly the number of offshore wind projects across the U.S. increases, so do the challenges associated with defining, designing and managing these major infrastructure projects.
We recognize that the growth of the U.S. offshore wind industry is predominantly being driven by state level commitments, which places an even greater need for a clear and consistent approach.
From theory through to practice, we explore these challenges in more detail to demonstrate why RPS is the right partner to help navigate complex permitting and compliance activities for offshore wind farm developments in fast-growing markets.
