With the goal of accelerating the growth of the state’s wind energy innovation ecosystem, supporting emerging companies, spurring the development of novel technologies and supplying trained professionals to the rapidly expanding renewable energy sector, the University of New Orleans, in partnership with the UNO Research & Technology Foundation, has announced the launch of the Louisiana Wind Energy Hub at UNO.
The hub will be located at The Beach at UNO, the University’s research and technology park. Louisiana’s 2022 climate action plan includes a goal of 5GW of offshore wind power generation by 2035. The plan says the goal requires strategic collaboration across Louisiana state agencies and the federal government, transmission planning agencies, energy regulators, utilities and the private sector to help advance the development of offshore wind power generation. The hub will create an atmosphere of collaboration and innovation, leveraging regional and international industry partners.
