DE-FOA-0001963: RFI: National Offshore Wind Energy R&D Test Facilities

The Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) to gain public input regarding U.S. national-level test facilities for offshore wind-specific research and development (R&D). WETO is seeking information on facilities that can conduct unique offshore wind R&D in the U.S., what upgrades to existing facilities or new facilities are needed for the U.S. to be at the cutting edge of offshore wind R&D, and what specific tests and analyses could be carried out at existing, upgraded, or new facilities in order to advance the U.S. offshore wind industry.

Please review the complete RFI, which can be accessed under the "Documents" heading below.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to no later than 5:00pm (ET) on September 14, 2018.
