New York Seeks RFPs for Logistics, Announces RFI for NY5


New York has announced that a $200 million Supportive Manufacturing and Logistics RFP is now open to support infrastructure investments in the state’s domestic offshore wind supply chain. 

In addition, an RFI will be issued to inform the development of New York’s fifth offshore wind project solicitation (NY5) and design of a coordinated $300 million RFP focusing on major component offshore wind supply chain investments. 
Based on industry feedback collected through a 2023 RFI, NYSERDA’s competitive supply chain development solicitation is seeking proposals for Tier 2 to Tier 4 infrastructure and manufacturing facilities. 
Proposers to the supply chain RFP will be required to demonstrate how funding will leverage significant private investments in supply chain projects and are encouraged to demonstrate that the funds awarded by the state are the final funds needed to develop a project. Proposals are due on August 13. 

In addition to the solicitation, the agency also issued an RFI to invite industry stakeholders to review and comment on the potential structure of the next Offshore Wind Renewable Energy Certificates (ORECs) solicitation and a coordinated $300 million Major Component Supply Chain RFP. Responses are due on May 21.

Following the RFI mentioned above, NYSERDA plans to launch the fifth offshore wind solicitation this summer. 

“The Center for Economic Growth and its partners have spent years building a robust offshore wind ecosystem, and we will continue to actively pursue manufacturing, workforce development, and supply chain opportunities,” says Center for Economic Growth’s Katie Newcombe. 

“Albany, NY’s Capital Region is home to the best shovel ready port sites in the United States. We stand ready to work with developers, suppliers, and NYSERDA through this and future opportunities to realize our collective vision of advancing offshore wind in New York State and bringing economic benefit to our communities.”
