The DOE “Wind Energy: Supply Chain Deep Dive Assessment” report, published in February 2022, lays out the energy supply chain challenges and opportunities faced by the United States. According to this report, there are three primary OEMs with significant operations and manufacturing capacity for the U.S. land-based wind market. Those companies are GE, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, and Vestas. While Nordex Acciona has little domestic manufacturing presence, it supplies a significant number of turbines to the United States. The table below outlines the supply chain announcements including the components and investors (with the investment amount, if known).[4]
