Today, the National Offshore Wind R&D Consortium announced the competitive selection of twelve new research projects, bringing the total number of awards to date to 20, representing an investment of up to $17.3 million.

When establishing the Consortium in 2018, DOE and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) each provided $20.5 million to fund high-impact research projects to lower the costs of U.S. offshore wind and support supply chain development. The Consortium plans to release another solicitation later this year.
