The plan was for New York State to soon kick off its second offshore wind tender. After last year's allocation of roughly 1.7 GW to Ørsted and Equinor, a prompt follow-up auction was supposed to underpin the state's declared status as the technology's main proponent in the US and allow it to secure more of the ever-fewer remaining site licenses left over from previous tenders.
On Wednesday last week, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) received a green light from power regulator New York Public Service Commission (NYPSC) to initiate an auction for 1-2.5 GW. The upper threshold would make the auction the largest to date. Now, however, there's uncertainty on whether it will be carried out at all, as NYSERDA has opted to postpone the tender indefinitely.
