สหรัฐอเมริกา : โททาลเอนเนอร์ยี่ส์ชนะการประมูลโครงการผลิตไฟฟ้าพลังงานลมขนาด 1 GW นอกชายฝั่งคาโรไลน่า โดยโครงการนี้จะผลิตกระแสไฟฟ้าจ่ายให้กับ 3 แสนครัวเรือน โดยคาดว่าจะใช้งานได้ในปี ค.ศ.2030
This announcement follows the award in February 2022 of a lease to develop a 3 GW wind farm off the coast of New York and New Jersey, United States.
“Being awarded this lease, our second offshore wind project in the U.S., demonstrates the strength of our commitment to the country and to our transformation in a multi energy Company. This project adds to our portfolio of more than 10 GW gross capacity of renewable projects in operation, in construction and in development in the U.S. It is one more step towards our objective of reaching 100 GW of renewable electricity generation worldwide by 2030,” said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies.
The Carolina Long Bay project is part of the U.S. government's goal to deploy 30 GW of offshore wind in the U.S. by 2030, in response to the climate challenge.
