ABOUT

New Jersey is located in the heart of the East Coast wind belt, and geographically positioned to be a hub for the U.S. offshore wind industry.

Under Governor Murphy’s leadership, New Jersey has established an ambitious goal of generating 11 GW of electricity from offshore wind energy by 2040 as part of the State’s Energy Master Plan to transition to 100 percent clean energy by 2035. NJEDA is investing resources to ensure that the arrival of offshore wind creates jobs and opportunities for New Jerseysans in addition to generating clean, sustainable energy.


Whether you are a large offshore wind developer, an established manufacturer or supplier looking to relocate, or a small business interested in joining the offshore wind supply chain, New Jersey is the place for your business to get started, get established, and grow.  See below for more information on New Jersey’s Offshore Wind Sector, and the programs and resources NJEDA has for developing the offshore wind economy.

The New Jersey Wind port

The New Jersey Wind Port is a purpose-built development project that is positioning New Jersey as a
hub for the US offshore wind industry.

The port offers an unrivaled combination of:

  • Purpose-built marshalling Heavy-lift wharfs and component laydown areas
  • Open access to the Atlantic Ocean (free of vertical restrictions)
  • Short steaming distances to more than 50 percent of US offshore wind lease areas
  • Access to a highly skilled trades and technical work force

The New Jersey Wind Port will support up to 1,500 manufacturing, assembly, and operations jobs. Construction of the port began in 2021 and is setting a new standard for minority-,veteran-, and women-owned business inclusion in contracting, as well as establishing a diversity target for construction workers at the site of 18% minority workers and 7% women workers.
