Energy Department Announces $28 Million in Funding for Wind Energy Research

March 28, 2019

The U.S. Department of Energy announced up to $28.1 million in funding aimed at advancing wind energy nationwide across the land-based, offshore, and distributed wind sectors. While utility-scale wind energy in the United States has grown to 90 gigawatts, significant opportunities for cost reductions remain, especially in the areas of offshore wind, distributed wind, and tall wind.

Concept papers for this funding opportunity are due April 29 and full applications are due June 17. More information and application requirements can be found on the EERE Funding Opportunity Exchange website.
