A leading offshore developer explains why the company is entering the U.S. market
In a milestone for the U.S. offshore wind industry, DONG Energy is entering the U.S. offshore market – the company explained why in a panel at the leading wind energy conference in North America, the WINDPOWER 2015 Conference & Exhibition.
Thomas Brostrøm, the Head of Markets & Pipeline at DONG Energy Wind Power, explained that the company is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, and has a significant presence in the United Kingdom, Germany, Norway, Netherlands and France: “We’re a world leader in offshore wind, with our first project installed 25 years ago and still spinning. We’re aiming for 6.5 GW by 2020 and we’re almost there–we have one-third of all the offshore wind in the world.”
The firm decided to enter the U.S. market, Brostrøm said, because the physical conditions for offshore wind along the East Coast are promising (good wind speeds, water depths in which DONG Energy has experience), as well as because the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has been working hard to encourage market development and several states have generating capacity needs that they hope to fill with clean energy.
The U.S. offshore wind industry has scored a major advance in recent weeks with the “groundbreaking” and beginning of component construction for Deepwater Wind’s Block Island Wind Farm.
Brostrøm was part of a panel on offshore wind that explored the opportunities and challenges for the industry. Other panelists in the session included Uffe Vinther-Schou of MHI Vestas Offshore Wind (a joint venture between Vestas and Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries); Mary Doswell, Dominion Resources; Paul Gallagher Sr., Fishermen’s Energy; and Doug Pfeister of the Renewables Consulting Group.
Climate change is a critical concern prompting Fishermen’s Energy’s interest in offshore wind, according to COO and General Counsel Paul Gallagher Sr. The commercial fishermen who founded the company “have seen firsthand that waters are rising, and that shellfish are being affected [by ocean acidification]. They’ve seen how clam boats used to leave the harbor and turn right [south], but now they turn left [north] because the clams are moving north.”
Fishermen’s Energy has been in a multi-year court battle with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU), which denied its application for an offshore project. Gallagher said he is confident that the court will ultimately rule in the company’s favor.
For his part, Uffe Vinther-Schou explained that MHI Vestas Offshore Wind is a new startup, formed a year ago, but has gone from 300 to 600 employees in that time. The company, he said, aspires to be a leader in offshore wind and has a multi-gigawatt pipeline for its 3- and 8-MW turbines.
Doug Pfeister explained that Renewable Consulting Group is a specialized expert services firm supporting the global renewable energy sector. The firm has been involved with offshore wind projects in Europe and hopes to see more action in the U.S. market. Of the Deepwater Wind 30-MW project off Block Island, he commented, “I think it’s what we need right now. There have been questions about offshore wind in the U.S., and the first demonstration project is going to answer lot of those questions.” The project, he added, should also create competition among the states, once they see that the technology is real and has potential economic benefits: “Given the good wind resource, good water depths, and access to ports that is available, Block Island should have a catalytic effect.”
Dominion Resources’ Mary Doswell noted that Dominion has been awarded $47 million by the federal government to install a pilot offshore wind farm off Virginia. She said that Dominion is trying to reduce costs for the project, but that on the plus side the company is a state-regulated utility, and therefore has no need for a power purchase agreement. It also has transmission capacity available close to the coast that is sufficient to handle not only the pilot project, but the estimated 2,000 MW of potential wind capacity off Virginia’s coast.

GAO concludes failing to extend PTC would likely reduce clean energy development
A recent report issued by the independent, nonpartisan U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) reaches the same conclusion that the American Wind Energy Association has: the Production Tax Credit (PTC) for renewable energy is critical for continued wind energy development.
The report states, “Reducing state or federal supports would likely reduce the development of renewable projects unless [power purchase agreement (PPA)] prices increased to compensate for the reduction in federal support.” Increases in the price of PPAs, or the long-term contracts that are signed between a project owner and a power purchaser to lock in electricity prices over the course of 20 to 25 years, would primarily harm electricity consumers. As the report notes, these increased costs are passed on to your electric bill and would be dramatic if Congress failed to extend the PTC. Specifically, the report finds that PPA prices for wind projects would have to increase 32 to 62 percent for wind developers to maintain profitability on their projects.
Federal tax credits such as the PTC lower the price of wind energy and benefit electricity consumers as a result. The report states “[t]hese lower prices [are] then passed on to retail customers. In this way, these supports can be thought of as reducing the price of electricity that retail customers pay.”
In addition to the consumer benefits offered by the PTC, failure to extend this tax credit would also have negative effects on wind deployment and the 73,000 jobs that the industry currently supports. When the PTC has expired in the past, installations have fallen off of a cliff. After the expiration of the PTC at the end of 2012, wind installations dropped 92 percent in comparison the following year. This uncertainty harms an industry that is bringing clean energy to the grid and significant local benefits, from jobs to local tax revenue, to communities.
The report notes that state Renewable Portfolio Standards have played an important role in driving renewable deployment, but as many have now been met, federal tax policies are increasingly important going forward. The GAO report is further proof that Congress should pass a long-term extension of the PTC to prevent pushing the industry off of another cliff. This would be negative for the American people. Diversifying our electricity mix with clean, affordable wind energy helps protect consumers against price spikes in other fuels.
Congress should follow the will of the people and extend the PTC.

Another day, another hypocritical and misleading Koch group letter
Koch Industries and their well-funded web of organizations are once again attacking an important policy for wind power — the renewable energy production tax credit (PTC) – this time with a letter to Congress that makes a claim that even Koch-funded polling disproves.
On Monday, the Koch front group Americans for Prosperity sent a letter to Congress that used misleading talking points to label the PTC a “handout.”
One key fact undermines their credibility: Americans for Prosperity has previously defended tax incentives for the oil industry – tax incentives that Koch Industries has fought for and profited from. When discussing the PTC the fact that all energy sources receive tax incentives is crucial context for understanding the environment that the wind industry competes in.
The letter itself made several misleading claims, including one that even a Koch-funded poll refutes:
KOCH CLAIM: “[T]here remains strong opposition from your constituents and taxpayers to extending” the PTC.
REALITY: Even a poll by the Koch-backed group American Energy Alliance found a majority of voters support for the PTC.
A USA TODAY poll found that 73 percent of Americans support continuing tax incentives for wind power in December 2013.
A broad bipartisan coalition of 370 companies and organizations and dozens of Republican members of Congress support extending the PTC.
Several recently elected Republican members of Congress also support extending the tax credit.
KOCH CLAIM: “We see wind power continue to break its promises of long-term job creation, economic activity, and affordability.”
REALITY: With the help of the PTC, wind costs have declined by more than half in the last five years, spurring economic development in rural communities and creating thousands of well-paying manufacturing jobs.
Thanks to improvements in technology, wind has lowered its costs by more than half the last five years, according to the Wall Street investment firm Lazard. These savings are passed onto consumers.
American wind power has supported an average of 73,000 well-paying jobs over the past five years and can create hundreds of thousands more with long-term, stable policy.
American wind power has created a brand new domestic manufacturing supply chain stretching across 43 states with over 500 factories.
KOCH CLAIM: “American taxpayers and ratepayers have seen little return on this forced investment in wind energy over the past 20 years.”
REALITY: The PTC has attracted $105 billion in private investment to our economy since 2005, and drieven down costs for electricity consumers.
Attacks from the Koch brothers are nothing new – the Koch brothers and their allies sent out another letter just a few days earlier signed largely by Koch-backed groups and even anti-wind Canadian organizations. As E&E News titled its article on the letter, “Another Koch group warns against PTC extension.” Despite theiraggressive tactics, we are confident that the broad support for wind energy will overcome these manufactured attacks.
