Offshore Wind

Most of the world has only begun to tap into the potential of offshore wind as an abundant energy source. Higher wind speeds, coupled with more consistency, make offshore wind a reliable – and ultimately affordable – source of power.

American Clean Power finds that roughly 80% of Americans live within 200 miles of the coast. Located near major coastal population centers with significant energy demands, offshore wind is a sustainable power solution that represents a huge opportunity as we plan for a net-zero future.

Jacobs has been leading wind farm projects since the mid-1970s. Our offshore wind power services help our clients meet increasing global demand for clean energy in a cost-effective way.

    Decarbonization

    Decarbonization is our overarching path to a net zero future and this “race to zero” comprises two complementary pathways. The first pathway is about reducing the carbon footprint produced across every industry – from water and transport, to manufacturing and city precincts. The second is by decarbonizing the gas and electricity systems that power them, which is commonly referred to as “the energy transition.”
