Making offshore wind more affordable

Ole-Erik Endrerud, PhD Student, NORCOWE, Department of Mechanical and Structural Engineering and Material Science, University of Stavanger

 Offshore wind has been a popular source of renewable energy for some time now, but still, it’s too expensive to spur a large-scale industrial development. My project, which is a part of the Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind Energy (NORCOWE), is trying to do something about the cost-problem.
