US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry announced US$18.5 million in new Department of Energy (DOE) funding for an offshore wind research and development (R&D) consortium that will conduct US-specific research aimed at reducing the cost of offshore wind in the USA.

This consortium will be a cooperative private-public innovation hub addressing topics, including wind plant technology advancement, resource and physical site characterisation, installation, operations and maintenance, and supply chain technology solutions. Under this competitive funding opportunity announcement, DOE intends to select an administrator to coordinate the collaborative R&D activities conducted by the consortium. The consortium will include members of the offshore wind industry, who will contribute funds to the consortium and use the research findings to further advance technologies. In addition to this $18.5 million funding opportunity announcement, $2 million will also be allocated to research at DOE’s national laboratories to support consortium R&D activities.
