Paul Weiland Discusses Potential Impact of Trump Administration on Wind Energy Industry


Paul Weiland was quoted in a RECHARGE NEWS article titled, “How Donald Trump could carry out his threat against offshore wind,” that examined how a second Trump administration could impact the industry.  

Commenting on how a potential Trump administration could curtail the work the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has done under President Biden, Paul said activity “could be halted early in a second Trump term.”

He added, “It's not uncommon for new administrations to pause most major rulemakings, just to make sure that they know what's going on. If there are rules in the pipeline to facilitate offshore wind projects, a future Trump administration may well put a timeout on those and look at them and decide if they want to scrap them.” 

Discussing projects that have not completed the permitting process, he said, “For projects that don't have their permits it's certainly possible they can be slowed down or even stopped, or at least face additional hurdles.”
