The University of Delaware in the U.S. has found that the distance at which turbines are located from shore has a significant impact on how tourists feel about offshore wind projects.
Delaware’s Offshore Wind Working Group is hosting two public workshops in May to gather input for Governor John Carney on its draft recommendations regarding the development of offshore wind in the state.
Delaware's Offshore Wind Working Group is hosting two public workshops to gather input on the potential of offshore wind energy and the ways that it might benefit this U.S. state.
Delaware Governor John Carney has established the Delaware Offshore Wind Working Group to study potential environmental and economic development benefits offshore wind could bring to the state.
The University of Delaware has determined that assembling offshore wind turbines in a port is the most cost- and time-effective method in the construction of offshore wind farms, since it would cost up to USD 1.6 billion less per project than conventional approaches and would take half the construction time.
Delaware Governor John Carney has signed an executive order establishing the Offshore Wind Working Group to study potential environmental and economic development benefits of offshore wind development to serve this U.S. state.
In Europe, offshore wind turbines support 58,000 jobs and generate enough electricity to power 6 million homes. Experts from the offshore wind industry gathered at the Capitol Thursday, June 12, to share lessons learned that could help produce similar results stateside. Organized by the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative on Offshore Wind, which fosters collaboration among […]
The University of Delaware will steer the way toward making offshore wind turbines a reality in the United States through a new initiative announced yesterday at a major industry conference. The Special Initiative on Offshore Wind, housed at the University’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, will serve as an independent catalyst for offshore wind […]
Forward-looking questions on wind power were addressed by experts in the field of wind energy last week at a symposium sponsored by the University of Delaware Energy Institute (UDEI). The two-day event, titled “The Importance of Meteorology to Wind Energy: Research Needs for the Next 10 Years,” convened researchers from academia, industry and government on […]
Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons and Rep. John Carney (all D-Del.) introduced the Incentivizing Offshore Wind Power Act to provide critical financial incentives for investment in offshore wind energy. This legislation would provide the offshore wind industry with enhanced stability by extending investment tax credits for the first 3,000 Megawatts of offshore wind facilities […]
As part of the Obama Administration’s all-of-the-above strategy to expand safe and responsible domestic energy production, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Director Tommy P. Beaudreau have announced that BOEM has reached agreement on a lease for commercial wind energy development in federal waters that covers 96,430 acres […]
The University of Delaware’s Kent Messer leads a research team that is conducting two studies at the Delaware coast to determine how people would react to offshore energy production and how that could impact the state’s economy. The first study was conducted at Cape Henlopen and Rehoboth Beach and involved students surveying beachgoers to see […]
U.S. Senators Tom Carper, Chris Coons and Congressman John Carney (all D-Del.) wrote to U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu Tuesday evening urging him to review and support a joint proposal by the University of Delaware (UD) and National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) to establish an offshore wind test site off of the Delaware coast. […]
Installing wind turbines is not just about finding the spot where the wind blows the strongest. A team of researchers from the University of Delaware and Stanford University found out that if they place wind turbines in different locations they can get more leveled and uniformed power. The study was conducted off the east coast, […]
