EPSCoR: Innovations in Renewable Energy

CCPI Scientists John Madsen and Bonnie Ram, as part of University of Delaware’s NSF-funded Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) grant, received two years of funding to research innovations of renewable energy. The target of this research is to reduce costs and properly address issues associated with geotechnical property and environmental risks in the offshore wind areas in the Mid-Atlantic Bight. As part of their research, they will develop a picture of the sediment in the offshore wind areas and apply an integrated risk analysis to the development of offshore wind.
