DOE Awards $141 Million to ‘Innovative’ Offshore Wind Energy Projects

Location:
12th May 2014  To: 12th May 2014

Three innovative offshore wind power projects in the US have been awarded up to $47 million (£27.7m) each by the Department of Energy.

They are expected to add 67MW of offshore wind capacity by 2017 and help drive down costs for future wind farms.

These projects – located off the coast of New Jersey, Oregon and Virginia – will help speed the deployment of more efficient offshore wind power technologies.
Fishermen’s Energy, Principle Power and Dominion Virginia Power will receive the funds over four year for the projects located off the coast of New Jersey, Oregon and Virginia.

One of the projects will act as a laboratory for researchers to learn about offshore wind and investigate interactions between turbines while another is expected to show the installation, operation and maintenance methods for wind turbines located far from shore.
