The U.S. Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium FOA solicits an administrator to establish and lead a voluntary consortium of members committed to shared public/private investment in collaborative R&D focused on realizing technology improvements for the offshore wind industry in the U.S.

The U.S. offshore wind industry has unique technological challenges that have yet to be overcome in the global offshore wind market. In order to establish a consortium to undertake mutually beneficial research and development (R&D) addressing these challenges, a competitive award of $18.5M will be made under this Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) FOA. An additional $2.0M will be allocated directly from DOE to DOE/NNSA Federally Funded Research (FFRDC) and Development Centers to carry out R&D activities, either in direct partnership with the applicant, or prioritized by the consortium.
