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 […]
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 […]
The University of Delaware is coordinating six companies in a design effort to reduce the cost of energy and the time to deployment as well as attract investment in offshore wind power. With a $500,000 grant from the Department of Energy and an equal amount contributed by the companies, the consortium will design an integrated […]

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.
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.
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 […]
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, […]
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) and the Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW), based at the University of Delaware, released a new video that features never-before-seen underwater footage of fish feeding at America’s first offshore wind farm, as well as testimonials from local recreational fishermen and charter captains.
US electrical grid has the potential to handle large amounts of installed offshore wind capacity which would also lead to less pollution and reduced electricity costs, according to a study carried out by researchers from the University of Delaware and Princeton University.
Offshore wind turbines could provide enough electricity for the entire world if connected into the right kind of grid, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Delaware and Stony Brook University and published in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Sciences.
The U.S. offshore wind industry represents a circa USD 70 billion CAPEX revenue opportunity to businesses in the local supply chain, according to a new white paper by Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW). The analysis, provided by Renewables Consulting Group (RCG), offers a road map for states and a menu for suppliers to build new offshore wind […]
The Danish Energy and Climate Academy (ECA) and the University of Delaware have developed the Offshore Wind Skills Academy (OWSA) to provide education for the U.S. offshore wind market. The aim of OWSA is to prepare professionals from traditional energy industries, supply chain companies, regulators, investors, consultants and others who may be new in the offshore wind sector. […]
Offshore wind developers Deepwater Wind and DONG Energy have joined the New York Offshore Wind Alliance (NYOWA), with a goal to secure a commitment from New York to develop 5GW of offshore wind power by 2030. The coalition, announced yesterday, is a project of the Alliance for Clean Energy New York (ACE NY), a non-profit organization promoting […]
University of Delaware (UD) researchers, who studied wind conditions at the Cape Wind offshore site, have found that offshore wind in the northeastern United States may be more powerful, yet more unstable than expected. The findings could have important implications for the future development of offshore wind farms in the U.S., including the assessment of how much […]
New York State senators Liz Krueger and Brad Hoylman released a letter signed by 20 state senators to Governor Andrew Cuomo and Audrey Zibelman, Chair of the New York State Public Service Commission, calling for the inclusion of an offshore wind tier in the forthcoming Clean Energy Standard. The Public Service Commission (PSC) recently published a […]
Commitment by Massachusetts to develop offshore wind energy at a scale of 2,000 MW, combined with ongoing technology and industry advances, will lower previously projected costs for the clean energy source by as much as 55 percent in the next decade, according to a new study by the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW). […]
A new study, offering a roadmap of key strategic steps New York State can take to reduce costs of offshore wind power over the next decade, has been published. Conducted by the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative on Offshore Wind (SIOW) for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the study finds that […]
The University of Delaware (UD) is to hold the first Green Liaisons sustainability lecture of the spring tomorrow from 1p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Ewing Room. The lecture will feature UD researcher Jeremy Firestone, who will speak about the wind turbine located on the University’s Lewes campus. As a faculty member in the School […]
Rerouting ships to open up areas for offshore wind development could save billions of dollars in construction and operating costs for the renewable energy source, according to new findings by the University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE).
