D. Allen Hughes, PE
The content of this course is a document written by Mary Rock and Laura Parsons at The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI). This course will introduce you to the principles and practices of offshore wind facilities. The document is a summary of a study conducted by EESI of existing European and Asian offshore wind farms, and visitors to and residents of coastal areas that would be candidates for offshore wind farm sites. Although land-based wind turbines are prevalent in the United States, there are no offshore wind farms in U.S. waters. The topics addressed include technical issues related to marine foundations and structures, transmission issues unique to offshore power generation, political and regulatory issues related to offshore and state jurisdictions in coastal areas and public perceptions of proposed offshore wind farms.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
