NOWRDC Innovation in Offshore Wind Solicitation 3.0 (PON 5610)

Due Date:  01/10/2024  (Round 1)


Developing and demonstrating technology innovations that will reduce the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for offshore wind in the United States is the purpose behind Program Opportunity Notice (PON) 5610 from the National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium (NOWRDC). The NOWRDC is a nationally focused, independent, not-for-profit organization funded by NYSERDA, the U.S. Department of Energy, and additional states Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Virginia, New Jersey, and California. The NOWRDC is dedicated to supporting industry-led research and development activities that will remove barriers to implementation of offshore wind in all U.S. wind regions and support the growth of U.S.-based offshore wind manufacturing and the supply chain. 

Proposals for PON 5610 should focus on new solutions that remove barriers and address issues essential for cost reduction, deployment, and industry growth specific to offshore wind regions of the U.S. Proposals should demonstrate technologies with a high potential for replicability, providing a feasible path to commercialization that delivers benefits to multiple categories of end-users.
