Innovations developed in the TIADE project will be tested on the full-scale 130 m diameter turbine recently installed in Wieringermeer, Netherlands. The turbine is powered by two-piece blades which allows the outer 12 m of the blades to be replaced by several innovative tips such as spoilers, serrations, vortex generators, "turbulators" and blade tip improvements. These innovations, which will be validated using advanced measurement techniques, can be applied to newly manufactured wind turbines in the factory or retrofitted to existing offshore wind farms. With both options available, implementation of the technologies in offshore wind farms can be done from 2023.

The applicants in the established renewables category need to have a minimum net installed capacity of 4 MW if a generating project, or 500 kW if an Indigenous-owned scheme, and must be commercially viable in Canada.
Emerging technologies to be considered will have been successfully deployed at the utility scale in other countries but still not commercially viable in Canada. Heating and storage projects need to have capacities of not less than 40 terajoules (TJ) and 1 MW, respectively. The minimum sizes for generating and Indigenous-owned projects in this category are the same as in established renewables. Demonstration projects, renewable fuel production projects and non-organic waste-to-power projects will not be considered eligible.
The maximum funding in all categories is $50 million and there is also a limit to the percentage of total cost that can be supported, which is 10 pct for established renewables, 30 pct for emerging technologies and 50 pct for grid modernisation.

The selections announced today include:
DOE established the National Offshore Wind R&D Consortium in 2018 to address research priorities for offshore wind as defined in the National Offshore Wind Strategy, which was developed jointly by DOE and the DOI Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM).
The Consortium is administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) with DOE and NYSERDA each providing $20.5 million to fund high-impact research projects that lower the costs of U.S. offshore wind.

The new law requires that greenhouse gas emissions in 2030 be at least 50 pct lower than 1990 emissions, and that 2040 emissions be at least 75 pct lower and that 2050 emissions be at least 85 pct below 1990 emissions. The remaining 15 pct will be achieved through carbon sequestration and carbon banking.
The bill also requires the Department of Public Utilities to consider emissions reductions on an equal footing as its considerations of power generation reliability and affordability within 90 days, that the governor appoint three green building experts to the Board of Building Regulations and Standards, and that the administration establish the first-ever greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal for the home energy efficiency program MassSave.
