DOE Announces $20 Million Investment in Offshore Wind Resource Characterization and Technology Demonstration

April 1, 2020

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a $20 million investment in offshore wind energy resource characterization and technology demonstrations. This Funding Opportunity Announcement supports offshore wind development by improving the ability to forecast energy production and by demonstrating innovative technologies not yet deployed at commercial scale. By providing funding, technical assistance, and government coordination to develop innovative technologies, DOE can help lower the cost of energy and technology risk, enabling continued cost-effective deployment of wind power.
