The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is working on a second offshore wind master plan focusing on development in deeper waters, and plans to release a blueprint in the spring, an official said.

Georges Sassine, NYSERDA’s vice president for large-scale renewables, announced during a session of a recent Floating Offshore Wind Shot summit that the agency is “in the midst of kickstarting” the plan and encouraging innovation in the floating wind space.

NYSERDA said it will study the risks and benefits of launching offshore wind in deeper waters and release a synthesis of those studies around 2025.
