Total wins 3 GW offshore wind deal on New Jersey coast

French energy giant TotalEnergies has won a bid to build three gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind power capacity on the New Jersey coast in the United States.

The company said the $795 million deal is for the 341 sq km New York Bight concession, which is located up to 87 km from the coasts of New Jersey and New York and is scheduled to start production by 2028.

TotalEnergies also said it would acquire Germany energy group EnBW’s stake in the project because EnBW wants to focus on its European activities.

The French group’s CEO, Patrick Pouyanne, said the project is TotalEnergies’ biggest renewable energy project and lifts its portfolio to more than 10 GW of offshore wind projects.

“This grand entrance into offshore wind in the US is a major step toward our goal of reaching 100 GW of renewable electricity generation capacity worldwide by 2030,” he said.

“This development adds another dimension to our renewable business in the US, currently representing 4 GW of solar farms under development. This is the largest renewable energy project TotalEnergies has ever undertaken and we now have a portfolio of over 10 GW of offshore wind projects, a technology in which we aim to be a world leader by leveraging our offshore expertise.”

The deal comes as President Joe Biden’s administration has set a goal to install 30 GW of offshore wind by 2030 in an effort to tackle climate change and create jobs.

Indeed, the country’s first major sale of offshore development rights drew a record $4.37 billion in bids from developers including several European energy giants.

The leases in New York Bight – shallow waters between New York’s Long Island and New Jersey – are projected to host projects able to generate up to 7 GW of electricity.
