The California Energy Commission (CEC), the state agency charged with setting energy policy, has outreached calls from key stakeholders including state governor Gavin Newsomby raising non-binding state 2045 planning goals for floating wind from 20GW to 25GW, while increasing its 2030 target from 3GW to 5GW.

The CEC is required under AB525, the offshore wind statute signed last September, to submit a report to the state legislature and the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) laying out the state's offshore wind planning goals for 2030 and 2045.
