Report: Constructing Offshore Wind Turbines on Land Is the Most Cost-Effective Method

Oct. 11, 2017

Working with industry partners, University of Delaware researchers announced that they have developed a new method for constructing offshore wind farms. The researchers calculated that their innovative process will cost up to $1.6 billion less per project than conventional approaches and take half the construction time. The Energy Department’s Wind Energy Technologies Office provided funding support for the project. The full report is available at Industrializing Offshore Wind, along with two videos to compare the new construction method with the conventional approach.
