On January 12, the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking a qualified entity to conduct a feasibility study for a world-class, flagship offshore wind research and development (R&D) testing facility as part of the Authority’s strategy to accelerate innovation for the offshore wind industry. The Offshore Wind Innovation Center Feasibility Study RFP can be found here.


The firm selected through the RFP will be responsible for providing the background review and market analysis, feasibility analysis, and implementation plans for this facility.
