1 min read

The Department of Energy has selected the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority to lead an $18.5 million offshore wind research and development consortium of stakeholders from government, industry and academia.

The consortium will seek to uncover new approaches for wind resource and site characterization and develop technologies for installing, operating, maintaining and managing supply chain of offshore wind plants, DOE said Friday.

Efforts will focus on four key research areas: deep water, locations with unfamiliar seabed conditions, hurricane impact on the East Coast and challenging environments for at-sea installation and operations.

The department will also obligate additional $2 million to support the consortium’s activities conducted at DOE national laboratories.

“Through this consortium, DOE seeks to support fundamental research to accelerate the development of affordable offshore wind technologies,” said Timothy Unruh, deputy assistant secretary for renewable power at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
