$500 Million Supply Chain Investment

New York State is seeking to invest $500 million to spur the establishment of an offshore wind supply chain in New York, working in collaboration with federal agencies and regional state partners as part of a shared vision for a U.S. supply chain. NYSERDA will distribute the available funding in phases to help attract and catalyze additional private funds for further development of the industry.

Up to $300 million of this funding was made available as part of the State’s third offshore wind solicitation (ORECRFP22-1), issued in 2022, to encourage partnerships between offshore wind developers and manufacturers. In October 2023, NYSERDA provisionally awarded three offshore wind projects for contract negotiations and provisionally awarded $300 million of New York State grant funding to GE Vernova and LM Wind Power for the development of nacelle and blade manufacturing facilities in New York’s Capital Region. In April 2024, NYSERDA announced that ORECRFP22-1 concluded and no final awards were made. The $300 million in grant funding provisionally awarded to GE Vernova and LM Wind will be made available through a future supply chain solicitation, coordinated with NYSERDA’s fifth offshore wind solicitation. NYSERDA has issued a Request for Information to inform these future solicitations. More information is available below.

Up to $200 million will be awarded through the State’s first solicitation focused exclusively on offshore wind supply chain development, launched in April 2024. This Request for Proposals was informed by feedback received through Request for Information SCIPRFI23-1 Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. in Fall 2023. More information on NYSERDA’s open supply chain solicitation is available below.

2024 Offshore Wind Supportive Manufacturing and Logistics Request for Proposals (Open)

Up to $200 million is being made available through the State’s first solicitation focused exclusively on offshore wind supply chain development issued on April 23, 2024. Through this solicitation, Offshore Wind Supportive Manufacturing and Logistics Request for Proposals (OSWSCRFP24-1) Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page., NYSERDA seeks to award proposals that support New York’s position as the regional hub for offshore wind. OSWSCRFP24-1 demonstrates NYSERDA’s support in building a supply chain that locates not only primary component manufacturing in New York State, but also bolsters supportive manufacturing and port infrastructure opportunities as well. In addition to satisfying regional demand, selected projects may serve as building blocks to support the location of major component manufacturing procured through future supply chain solicitations, enabling a supply chain ecosystem in New York.

OSWSCRFP24-1 specifically enables growth and localization of the offshore wind supply chain in New York by focusing on both port infrastructure and manufacturing facilities, with separate evaluation tracks for each.

Proposers to the Supportive Manufacturing and Logistics RFP will be required to demonstrate how State funding will leverage significant private investments in supply chain projects and are encouraged to demonstrate that the funds awarded by the state are the final funds needed to develop a project.
