DOE awards $6 million in wind energy research projects

By Michelle Froese The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) selected nine projects totaling $6.2 million that will reduce environmental compliance costs and environmental impacts of land-based and offshore wind energy.
The DOE has committed to investing $6.2 million in three wind project research areas.
Funded by the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office, these early-stage research projects are key to development of wind energy as part of DOE’s “all-of-the-above” energy strategy. Technologies that reduce the impact to bats, birds and other wildlife can lead to less “curtailment” when wind turbines need to be shut down. In turn, this will
