June 4, 2020

The National Offshore Wind R&D Consortium announced the competitive selection of 12 new research projects. This brings the total number of Consortium awards to date to 20, representing an investment of up to $17.3 million. When establishing the Consortium in 2018, DOE and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority each provided $20.5 million to fund high-impact research projects to lower the costs of U.S. offshore wind and support supply chain development. The Consortium plans to release another solicitation later this year.
