U.S. offshore wind industry grant
June 19, 2019
NYSERDA is now offering support to fund additional areas of innovation for the U.S. offshore wind industry focusing on resource and site assessment, installation and operation, and the supply chain, including the following areas:
Comprehensive Wind Resource Assessment
Development of a Metocean Reference Site
Heavy Lift Vessel Alternatives
Offshore Wind Digitization Through Advanced Analytics
Technology Solutions to Accelerate U.S. Supply Chain
These new topics are in addition to previously announced challenge areas focused on offshore wind plant technology advancement.
Program Opportunity Notice (PON) 4124 is being executed on behalf of the National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium (Consortium) and seeks to develop and demonstrate technology innovations that will reduce the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) for offshore wind in the United States. The Consortium is a nationally focused, independent, not-for-profit organization funded by NYSERDA and the U.S. Department of Energy, dedicated to supporting industry-led research and development activities that will remove barriers to implementation of offshore wind in all U.S. wind regions.
Proposals should focus on new solutions that remove barriers and address issues essential for cost reduction, deployment, and industry growth specific to offshore wind regions of the U.S. Proposals should demonstrate technology with high potential for replicability, providing a feasible path to commercialization that delivers benefits to multiple categories of end-users. The Consortium’s goal is to develop and demonstrate technology innovations that reduce LCOE for offshore wind in the U.S., remove risk and other barriers to implementation, and support the growth of U.S.-based offshore wind manufacturing and the supply chain.
Proposals Accepted: until December 31, 2019 3:00 p.m. ET or until all funds are committed.
