Roadmap: Technologies for Cost Effective, Spatial Resource Assessments for Offshore Renewable Energy

Lead PI: Dr. John Miller, University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth Marine Renewable Energy Center & Dr. Eugene Terray, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Start Year: 2010 | Duration: 4 years
Partners: Imaging Science Research, Inc., Teledyne RD Instruments, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, & Bureau of Ocean Energy Management

The project team proposes to develop a technology roadmap for the application of advanced spatial survey technologies to the assessment and post-development monitoring of offshore wind and hydrokinetic renewable energy resources and facilities. The emphasis will be on techniques
that provide spatial-temporal measurements. Although most of the evaluations will use models and existing data to analyze performance, several of the projects proposed here involve field tests intended to evaluate specific approaches.
