WINDExchange Publishes Final Offshore Wind Energy Webinar

July 27, 2022

Recently, WINDExchange hosted the fourth and final webinar in the offshore wind energy webinar series. The recording of the webinar, titled Technology Below the Water, has now been posted for viewing.

In this webinar, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s WINDExchange initiative, offshore wind energy experts from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the University of Massachusetts Amherst discuss below-the-water offshore wind energy technology, including foundations and cables. Specific aspects of offshore wind energy that are covered by the final webinar in NREL’s Offshore Wind Technology Basics series include fixed bottom turbines, floating turbines, mooring lines for floating turbines, cabling options and installation, and decommissioning. This virtual event also addresses the technology options and development considerations for diverse seafloor and oceanographic characteristics.
