Catalyst is assisting the California Energy Commission in the preparation of the AB 525 Strategic Plan, which will establish the vision and path forward for developing California’s offshore wind resources.
Catalyst assisted the CEC in developing draft goals for installed capacity (2030 and 2045) and performed analysis on the potential economic benefits of seaport development and workforce development. Our work entails the research and analysis of case studies from the U.S. East Coast and abroad to develop findings and recommendations for workforce development and standards. Further, Catalyst is engaging industry and training experts to incorporate their suggestions into the larger workforce development strategy, with a focus on supply chain development. Our work on the Strategic Plan will directly impact California’s floating offshore wind energy future and our findings will be used to help establish the common vision for industry, government, and stakeholders.
