DOE announced $33 million to support 14 clean energy research projects as part of a program to ensure the Department’s research funding is reaching the pockets of the country that traditionally have received disproportionately low amounts of Federal scientific funding. The projects will cover a range of topics, two of them being wind-related. 

  • University of New Hampshire (Durham, N.H.): Developing models for marine atmosphere boundary layers to address atmospheric turbulence and impact on wind turbine performance.
  • University of Rhode Island (Kingston, R.I.): Building and testing response systems to protect floating wind turbines and maximize power production during difficult weather conditions.
