The National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium is a nationally focused, not-for-profit organization collaborating with industry on prioritized R&D activities to reduce the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of offshore wind in the U.S. while maximizing other economic and social benefits.
Solications & Awards
In 2019 on the Consortium’s behalf, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) conducted the first competitive solicitation for R&D projects. PON 4124 closed on December 31, 2019. To date, $17.3 million in project funding has been awarded, with the latest round of awards announced June 4, 2020. A revised solicitation is expected to be released in July 2020.
The Consortium seeks to fulfill a long-term vision for offshore wind in the U.S. by supporting and promoting R&D activities that remove or reduce technological and supply chain barriers to deployment and lower development risk to investors.
