Credit: 2 PDH
Instructor: Juan C. Borrero, P.E.

Offshore wind turbines harness the energy of the ocean winds and switch it into electricity. This two hour course introduces the essential principles of projected US offshore wind facilities. The course summarizes a study conducted by EESI of existing European and Asian offshore wind farms. The topics self-addressed embrace technical problems relating to marine foundations and structures, transmission problems distinctive to offshore power generation, political and restrictive problems and therefore the public perceptions of projected offshore wind farms.
