The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has selected four projects totaling up to USD 8 million to develop next-generation drivetrain technologies to facilitate the growth of tall offshore and onshore wind turbines. The projects are expected to develop more efficient, smaller, and lighter-weight generators that will lower costs and make wind power more affordable. Each of the chosen […]
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is allocating up to USD 28.1 million in funding for wind energy research, of which more than half will be awarded for offshore wind. DOE will give up to USD 7 million for projects conducting testing in support of innovative offshore wind research and development using national-level testing facilities, including […]
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has allocated USD 6.2 million for nine projects expected to reduce environmental compliance costs and environmental impacts of offshore and onshore wind energy. The early-stage research projects, funded by the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Wind Energy Technologies Office, are expected to total USD 9.5 million […]
MHI Vestas will increase annual production at its nacelle factory in Lindoe, Denmark, to keep pace with offshore wind turbine demand, and is kicking off a recruitment process for 50 new employees.
The U.S Department of Energy (DOE) will fund the development of a lightweight, more efficient wind turbine drivetrain system that can help boost offshore wind turbine outputs to beyond 10MW.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s Budget for FY 2019, proposed to the U.S. Congress on 12 February, requests USD 30.6 billion for the Department of Energy (DOE), with DOE's Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) Office witnessing a cut of a little more than 65% compared to the budget enacted for 2017.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has officially announced a USD 18.5 million funding for an offshore wind R&D consortium that will conduct U.S.-specific research aimed at reducing the cost of offshore wind in the states.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) plans to issue a funding opportunity announcement entitled "U.S. Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium" in December 2017.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) are requesting public input on the draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the 20.7MW Project Icebreaker.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced nearly USD 32 million in funding for small business-led projects to further develop clean energy technologies that have a strong potential for commercialisation and job creation.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is requesting public input on the scope of an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the 12MW New England Aqua Ventus I floating offshore wind demonstration project in the Gulf of Maine, being developed by the University of Maine.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) has implemented a loan program to lend its LiDAR buoys to qualified parties to acquire wind resource characterization data in areas of interest for offshore wind energy development. DOE currently owns two AXYS WindSentinel buoys that collect meteorological and oceanographic data to support resource characterization for offshore wind energy. In […]
At a nomination hearing held by the US Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources yesterday, Rick Perry, who has been chosen by the newly-elected US president Donald Trump to lead the Department of Energy (DoE), reflected on his statement made several years ago that led to concerns on him being in charge of DoE. Namely, with […]
The US Energy Department’s Loan Programs Office (LPO) has added new application deadlines for its current Title XVII loan guarantee solicitations, which aim to accelerate the deployment of innovative clean energy technology. The next Part I application deadline is now scheduled for 18 January, 2017. The extension of the effective period for LPO’s Paperwork Reduction […]
UK participants of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme can rest assured that the approved projects applied for before the UK leaves the European Union will not be affected by the so-called Brexit, as the UK Treasury will underwrite funding for those Horizon 2020 projects. British businesses and universities will have certainty over future funding and should continue […]
Even though Vattenfall yesterday informed it made a final investment decision to build the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), this did not mark an end of the fight against the project for Donald Trump, whose company Trump International Golf Links said it will file “formal written objections” in an effort to stop the project's construction. Trump plans to start another […]
With the UK referendum result to leave the European Union, along came reactions discussing effects of the country's move, including those from the offshore wind sector, where the UK is at the forefront. According to BVG Associates' Director, Bruce Valpy, the implications for the UK as a whole will be known after the exit negations, which could take at least […]
United States Senators from the State of New Jersey, Bob Menendez and Cory Booker, have responded to the Department of Energy's (DOE) announcement on Fishermen’s Energy Atlantic City Wind Farm (FACW). The project has been granted a no-cost extension until the end of the year to secure a power offtake agreement and continue to receive funding as one […]
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has hired former senior adviser for offshore wind technologies at the U.S. Department of Energy, Gregory Matzat, to assist in the development of large-scale wind projects. The New York state's governor Andrew Cuomo recently committed to creating a USD 5 million New York Offshore Wind Master Plan, which […]
The U.S. Energy Department (DOE) recently deployed the AXYS WindSentinel buoy off the coast of Atlantic City, New Jersey, to gather necessary data needed to plan future offshore wind deployments. The buoy is one of the two the Energy Department owns. In December 2014, researchers from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory deployed the other buoy near Virginia […]
The New England Aqua Ventus I offshore wind project will get an additional $3.7 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
