The Maryland Energy Administration and the Maryland Higher Education Commission have issued a $2 million request for applications (RFA) designed to further Maryland's role as an offshore wind energy development hub.

The RFA, paid for with funds committed by Exelon as a condition of its merger with Constellation Energy, requests competitive proposals from Maryland's public colleges and universities for research grants of between $250,000 and $1 million.

Topics for the grant application include (but are not limited to) modeling and analysis, marine environment impact studies, infrastructure, superstructure, and operations research and planning. Applicants are encouraged to build upon current research sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and other institutions.

Applications are due April 15. More information is available here.
