Topic Preview – Innovations in Offshore Wind Solicitation 2.0
In this webinar, the National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium (NOWRDC) previews the topic areas that will be covered in their forthcoming Innovations in Offshore Wind Solicitation 2.0, tentatively slated for release in late-August 2021. NOWRDC's Innovations in Offshore Wind Solicitation 2.0 will be their third competitive solicitation release aimed at reducing the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and addressing other critical challenges facing offshore wind in the United States. Selected topic areas will be consistent with NOWRDC's Research and Development Roadmap 3.0, updated earlier this year.
NOWRDC Is Pleased To Share The Recording Of Their June 29 2021 Webinar Of The NOWRDC Roadmap 3.0 Release & Overview.In This Webinar, Walt Musical (NREL) Provided An Overview Of NOWRDC's Newly Released Roadmap 3.0. The Roadmap Serves As NOWRDC's Overarching Technical Guidance Document To Advance Offshore Wind Technology And Drive Innovation In The U.S. Offshore Wind Industry. Roadmap 3.0 Builds On The Previous Versions And Provides Updates To All Topic Areas Which Are Revised For Clarity And Better Identification Of Specific Project Types, As Well As The Consolidation And Addition Of Topic Areas.

Challenges & Opportunities for the Offshore Wind Supply Chain with the Investment Tax Credit
NOWRDC is pleased to share the recording of their April 8 2021 webinar on the Challenges and Opportunities for the Offshore Wind Supply Chain with the Investment Tax Credit. Please join NOWRDC with Scott Zimmermann and Todd Glass, attorneys at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, to discuss the investment tax credit (ITC). This webinar is a primer on the ITC and how such an incentive can be used to advance offshore wind development. This webinar will also look at the challenges of utilizing the ITC and what developers should consider when using this process.

Wind turbines harness the wind—a clean, free, and widely available renewable energy source—to generate electric power. Visit the interactive animation. You can start and stop the turbine’s movement, hover over parts to see their description, and use the icons in the lower right corner of the animation to switch views.
See how wind turbines generate clean electricity from the power of wind. The video highlights the basic principles at work in wind turbines, and illustrates how the various components work to capture and convert wind energy to electricity.

Opportunities for and Challenges to Further Reductions in the “Specific Power” Rating of Wind Turbines Installed in the United States
The trend toward lower specific power has pushed capacity factors higher while reducing LCOE. This study employs geospatial LCOE analysis across the U.S. to explore whether this trend is likely to continue.
