Project overview:

Long-Term Availability and Bankability of Offshore Wind Through Hurricane Risk Assessment and Mitigation

Awardee:

Northeastern University

Started:

Q2, 2022

Technical Challenge Area:

Environment and Conflicting Use

Completed:

Q1, 2024

Synopsis:

The purpose of this project is to construct a better more accurate hurricane prediction model for use across industry. In addition to developers and researchers it is expected that financial and risk firms will utilize this model. Accurately modeling hurricanes is essential to the efficient and safe operation of offshore wind.

Target Outcomes:

1
Remove a significant amount of the uncertainty associated with conjectures about hurricane risk, by undertaking a targeted industry-driven series of investigations that span from basic atmospheric science to highly applied OSW engineering.
