Siemens Gamesa & Aalborg University partner to reduce cost of offshore wind

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and Aalborg University in Denmark announced a partnership last month to lead the new i4Offshore research and development project, which will focus on significantly reducing the cost of offshore wind power through demonstrating and testing new technologies.

As announced on December 14, Siemens Gamesa and Aalborg University will lead the Integrated Implementation of Industrial Innovations for Offshore Wind Cost Reduction project, shortened to the snappier i4Offshore. The project is supported by a €20 million grant from the European Union’s (EU) Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and aims to demonstrate and test new offshore wind power technologies which will lead to cost-cutting solutions. The technologies to be tested will also be used to make offshore wind farms more environmentally friendly compared to other electricity sources, be they fossil fuel-based or renewable energy sources.
