Why not build offshore wind power for the U.S.?
ManufactureThis has previously reported on the story of Noel Davis, a retired U.S. Navy officer who has been looking to build a wind turbine components plant in Indiana through his firm, Vela Gear Systems LLC.
Davis has been asking a simple question of late: Why can't the U.S. start building offshore wind turbine assemblies to start generating power for the east coast?
In a recent presentation to Maryland state legislators, Davis explained how Europe has been using more and more wind power, including through offshore wind farms. Davis wants the U.S. to do the same.
Davis' presentation is a fascinating document that shows the history and development of wind power.
