|WINDINSPIRE is a NSF-supported international collaboration that addresses, primarily through computer simulations, the pressing research questions that arise when adding inherently intermittent wind sources to power systems. With billions of dollars to be invested in renewable power, improved understanding and better tools for effective use of sustainable but intermittent power sources are crucial.WINDINSPIRE facilitates international research experiences by graduate students, postdocs, undergraduate students and faculty with our international partners in Denmark, Switzerland, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and Norway. In the US, WINDINSPIRE joins researchers at the Johns Hopkins University’s E2SHI, Texas Tech University, Smith College, the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Michigan.
News & Announcements:
- National Offshore Wind Innovation Center (NOW-I-C) formed: The new Center joins researchers from five Maryland-based Universities (UMCP, JHU, UMBC, MSU and UMES) in order to increase fundamental scientific-engineering-economic knowledge and innovation, and to enable a successful national offshore wind industry in the United States.
- 2017 Summer Research experiences program: WINDINSPIRE International Research Opportunities For Undergraduates in Renewable Energy In Europe (Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Norway) is now accepting applications: Please see the Announcement here.
- Massachusetts Bill Creates 1600MW Offshore Wind Procurement. This is the first legislation of its kind that includes a specific carve out for offshore wind at a scale necessary to create a viable market in the United States. The bill requires big utilities to buy up to 1,600 megawatts of off-shore wind energy. This bill marks the start of the US Pipeline.
