Assessment of Offshore Wind Energy Resources for the United States

This U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, National Renewable Energy Laboratory Technical Report (NREL/TP-500-45889) dated
June 2010, summarizes the offshore wind resource potential, based on map estimates, for the contiguous United States and Hawaii, as of May 2009. The development of this assessment has evolved over multiple stages as new regional meso-scale assessments became available, new validation data were obtained, and better modeling capabilities were implemented. It is expected that further updates to the current assessment will be made in future reports.
