CA Energy Commission: Research Idea Exchange TN Number: 224982
Title: Notice of Staff Workshop Re. Next Generation Wind Energy Technologies and their Environmental Implications
Description: The Energy Commission is considering releasing a solicitation to address the engineering challenges associated with the next-generation wind energy technologies, and to develop monitoring systems that increase the cost-competitiveness of wind energy generation and allow broader geographic deployment of wind power in California. This workshop will gather information and feedback from stakeholders and experts about key challenges associated with the design, manufacturing, and deployment of larger rotors and blades, taller land-based wind towers, cost-effective real-time monitoring control systems, and research to survey and monitor environmental responses to offshore wind energy projects in California.
