Energy and Climate

Sandia executes several projects in support of the DOE Offshore Wind program, which address unique R&D needs related to offshore siting and, in many cases, leverages decades of land-based wind-energy experience along with offshore-specific research thrusts. These projects provide technology development and assessment in research areas important for reducing technology risk, siting offshore turbines and wind farms, and reducing offshore wind’s cost of energy. Some project highlights include

  1. Offshore Wind RD&D: Sediment Transport
  2. High-Resolution Computational Algorithms for Simulating Offshore Wind Farms
  3. Offshore Wind RD&D: Large Offshore Rotor Development
  4. Innovative Offshore Vertical-Axis Wind Turbine Rotors
  5. Offshore Structural Health and Prognostics Management
