TotalEnergies Awarded a 25-year Contract to Supply 1.4 GW of renewable electricity to New York

by Vincent Godstime

TotalEnergies and its partners, Corio Generation (Corio) and Rise Light & Power (Rise) announce that New York State selected their Attentive Energy One project for a 25-year contract to supply 1.4 GW of renewable electricity.

Attentive Energy One, a joint venture between TotalEnergies (40%), Rise (35%) and Corio (25%), received the provisional award in the State’s 2023 competitive OREC (Offshore Renewable Energy Credits) solicitation, organized by New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA). The Consortium aims to commission this project in 2029.


NYSERDA has put a particular emphasis on the local content of the proposal: the Attentive Energy One project will enable the construction of a new General Electric facility to manufacture offshore wind blades and nacelles and unlock $300 million in investments in various community-focused projects across New York State. It will in addition turn the Ravenswood gas-fueled power plant owned by Rise, into a clean energy hub at the heart of New York City.

The profitability of this project is ensured by the guaranteed level of OREC revenue, the benefit of a 40% IRA tax credit, the secured access to New York electricity grid brought by Rise and the local supply of turbines by General Electric at a competitive set price. Moreover, the contract awarded by NYSERDA will include an inflation adjustment mechanism to compensate for changes in construction costs until the final investment decision.
