This 4-hour course describes the electric generation potential for offshore wind turbines. Worldwide, there is a significant amount of offshore wind energy production. However, wind energy production in the United States lags behind Europe and Asia. This course provides information of wind energy resources, detailed descriptions of wind energy turbines and the types of foundations used for offshore wind energy turbines. Costs and environmental issues are also addressed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
