A Guide to Offshore Wind Energy: 2 PDH

Preview Course: A Guide to Offshore Wind Energy
Offshore wind turbines harness the energy of the ocean winds and turn it into electricity. This course introduces the basic principles of proposed US offshore wind facilities. The course summarizes a study conducted by EESI of existing European and Asian offshore wind farms. The topics addressed include techinical issues related to marine foundations and structures, transmission issues unique to offshore power generation, political and regulatory issues and the publics perceptions of proposed offshore wind farms. This course demonstrates that offshore wind energy has been successfully implemented in other parts of the world and that the potential for wind farms in U.S. waters is favorable.
