About the Alliance

The New York Offshore Wind Alliance (NYOWA) is a diverse coalition of organizations with a shared interest in promoting the responsible development of offshore wind power for New York.  NYOWA is a new project of the Alliance for Clean Energy New York (ACE NY).

The mission of the Alliance is to promote policies that will lead to the development of demand for offshore wind in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of New York State. NYOWA’s specific goal is to secure a commitment from New York to develop 5,000 MW of offshore wind power by 2030. The Alliance will undertake both public education and advocacy to build support for New York making a certain, long-term, large-scale commitment to offshore wind power.
