Executive summary The development of offshore wind represents an interesting technology opportunity for the US. On one hand, offshore wind is a European invention, and early technologies will have to be almost exclusively imported from Europe. On the other, though, the rapid pace of technology development in offshore wind offers significant potential for the US […]

Canada’s Axys Technologies Inc. has met all of the Stage 3 performance criteria outlined in the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator Roadmap for Floating LiDAR Technology (OWA Roadmap).
Dong Energy is intending to pursue an initial public offering within 18 months, subject to market conditions. The Danish company announced last week it will initiate the preparations “to allow the IPO to take place as soon as possible.” Dong Energy will continue to strengthen its position with a diversified renewables portfolio based on leading […]
Ocean Energy Systems (OES) started to prepare an International Ocean Energy Technology Roadmap. The overall object of the ocean energy technology roadmap, initiated in April 2015, is to achieve Levelised Cost Of Energy (LCOE) targets within the ocean energy sector. This requires principal focus on two key areas: Reliability improvement and Performance Improvement. Ocean energy […]
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 Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator has published a roadmap for commercial acceptance of floating LIDAR technology. As part of the Offshore Wind Accelerator programme, The Carbon Trust, along with a consortium of industrial partners, are investigating the potential of floating LIDAR (light detection and ranging) technology in the context of wind resource assessment for the offshore wind […]
RenewableUK has welcomed the publication of the UK Renewable Energy Roadmap Update by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. The Update states that the UK is on track to meet its first interim target on the way towards generating 15% of all energy (electricity, heat and transport) from renewable sources by 2020. This means […]
EU Energy Ministers meeting in Luxembourg today are expected to agree: – a substantially higher share of renewable energy beyond 2020 (defining it as a “no regret option”) – that developing post 2020 strategies is necessary and urgent, and to encourage work to define the 2030 policy framework “The European Parliament, European Commission and now […]
China Wind Energy Development Roadmap to 2050 was first published on Wednesday and China’s wind power generating capacity could reach one terawatt (1TW) by 2050. The capacity would provide as much as 17 percent of China’s electricity output by 2050. It was estimated mat cost of wind powered electricity will be below mat of […]

The Dutch government has introduced the ‘Roadmap to wind energy at sea 2030’ (‘Routekaart windenergie op zee 2030’, source: Rijksoverheid.nl) which states where new offshore wind farms can be developed. New to be developed offshore wind farms that should generate 7.000 MW of electricity. However, is the emerging offshore wind industry ready for this major […]
TenneT is set to deploy two 2GW direct current connections for the IJmuiden Ver offshore wind zone in the Netherlands, the first ever time this capacity is to be used. The connection will see two 525kV cables used, which allows lower costs, smaller space requirements and fewer routes on land, TenneT said. According to the […]
The implementation of U.S. offshore wind targets will not be as simple or, potentially, as green as it may seem since certain issues can “cause a bottleneck in the supply chain”, according to research by Yale University. Researchers from Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies challenged the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) offshore wind plans, focusing specifically […]
The U.S. National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium is allocating up to USD 7 million in funding for offshore wind technology projects. The announcement represents the consortium’s first comprehensive solicitation for offshore wind technology projects as called for in its Research and Development Roadmap. Under the solicitation, the consortium seeks proposals that foster reductions in the […]
France-based Akrocean has received stage 2 validation for its WINDSEA floating LiDAR (FLD) under the OWA Carbon Trust Roadmap. According to Akrocean, the validation was granted by DNV GL and marks commercial acceptance for the floating LiDAR. Offshore trials that began earlier in 2018 were performed in the English Channel and have been independently reviewed by DNV […]
DNV GL is inviting wind industry stakeholders to join a new project dedicated to developing recommended practice on turbine design methodologies for cyclones and earthquakes. The aim of the Alleviating Cyclone and Earthquake Challenges for Wind Farms (ACE) Joint Industry Project is to develop a new guide to alleviate wind turbine structures from the impacts of cyclones […]
Offshore service vessel Seazip 3 has performed the first-ever autonomous maneuvering trials in the Dutch North Sea as part of the Autonomous Shipping joint industry project. The fast crew supply (FCS) vessel was outfitted with collision avoidance technology and took part in 11 nautical scenarios on 19 and 20 March offshore Den Helder to determine how it would […]
Denmark and Turkey have signed an agreement to extend their existing energy cooperation to include offshore wind.
