Washington Unveiled this Wednesday, October 13 its project to build up to seven large wind farms off the coast of the country. An initiative that is part of the Biden Administration Plan to exit fossil energy and provide wind energy with more than 10 million US households by 2030. The "ambitious" roadmap " was announced a few weeks of opening the COP26 to Glasgow.

It's a gigantic step forward for wind in the United States. So far, only an offshore park was operational: the Block Island Wind Farm, completed at the end of 2016 off the state of Rhode Island. However, it is not able to provide that 30 megawatts in the country, or only 0.1% of the 30 gigawatts desired by President Biden for 2030.

It is a real race to green energies, and the American president made her Battle horse . No less than $ 12 billion will be spent to finance these seven new concessions. They will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from 78 million tonnes, says the White House, and will also create "tens of thousands of jobs" in the United States.

Grumbling Fishermen and criticism of green NGOs

It will also be necessary to count on the grumbling of fishermen who believe that these wind farms will help rarefine certain species such as lobsters. Other environmental organizations point the impact on marine fauna and flora.

Support for the Current Government's wind energy contrasts with the policy conducted by former President Donald Trump. It has been ridiculed several times this source of renewable energy during its mandate, claiming that it was expensive and ineffective.
