The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind and Hydropower Technologies program has extended its deadline for proposals from potential partners in research and development of utility-scale wind turbine and ocean energy technologies. The new deadline for submitting proposals is Nov. 26.

These cost-neutral cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) partnerships will leverage industry experience and needs with technology research and development expertise available at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Sandia National Laboratory to solve issues in utility-scale wind and, subject to receipt of certain congressional appropriations, ocean energy technologies.

Deadline: Extended to Nov. 26

In addition, the DOE Wind and Hydropower Technologies Program has extended the deadline for proposals for partnerships to test utility-scale wind turbines through a CRADA. The new deadline for submitting proposals is Nov. 26. The objective of the CRADA is to support industry efforts to improve reliability and performance of the utility-scale - 500 kW or larger - commercial wind turbine fleet intended for deployment in the U.S.

Turbines selected for participation will be erected at the NREL National Wind Technology Center for up to three years. Tests conducted will include power performance, acoustic noise, structural loads and power quality.

Deadline: Extended to Nov. 26
