We are excited to announce that we will be providing project advisory services to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). We’ve been selected to act as Buyer’s Engineer in support of the New York State’s offshore wind development objectives.

New York State has adopted some of the most ambitious clean energy goals in the nation, targeting 9,000 megawatts of offshore wind by 2035. As part of its comprehensive offshore wind program, NYSERDA is procuring contracts for the purchase and sale of Offshore Wind Renewable Energy Certificates (ORECs) and associated infrastructure agreements with developers.

As Buyer’s Engineer, we will support NYSERDA’s offshore wind program by providing project management services related to its OREC contract management and related technical support.

NYSERDA’s offshore wind program is critical to delivering the New York State’s mandate to secure 70 percent of New York State’s electricity from renewable energy by 2030 and a zero-emission electricity sector by 2040.

For more information, please contact Gary Leatherman.

We are proud to support NYSERDA as they take great strides to develop offshore wind as a viable renewable energy source on the east coast. This program is yet another step towards our shared goals to deliver a more sustainable world.
