Meteorological Tower Placement Report to the Virginia Offshore Wind Development Authority (VOWDA)

Description: 

The report describes the types of metocean data needed to inform and accelerate offshore wind project development, including recent results from Denmark that suggest how calibrated and traceable ground-based vertical-profiling LIght Detection And Ranging (LIDAR) can reduce uncertainty in estimating annual energy production. It recommends a phased development approach to outfit the Chesapeake Light Tower (CLT) with appropriate instrumentation to begin characterizing Virginia's offshore wind resource at a fraction of the cost of a new met tower in the initial phases of work.

Description: 

The report estimates the technical potential of specific renewable electricity generation technologies, including offshore wind, to allow cross-technology comparison. The total estimated technical potential generation of offshore wind is estimated to be 17,000 TWh. The total technical potential capacity of offshore wind is estimated to be 4,200 GW. Estimates are provided for each individual state.

Renewable Resource Supply Curve Report

Creator/Author: 
Sustainable Energy Advantages, LLC (SEA); RLC Engineering
Description: 

The study found that New England could develop 2,233.6 MW from offshore wind sources by 2016 and 22,436.8 MW from offshore wind sources by 2020. The potential decreases in levelized cost of energy (LCOE) could range from $33-$68/MWh. Through 2016, large scale onshore wind dominates the supply curve; offshore wind resources become economically feasible at approximately $210/MWh.

Description: 

Comments submitted by New Jersey Division of Rate Counsel on requests to modify project plans for installation of meteorological towers. Rate Counsel requests that the Board of Public Utilities (BPU) defer its decision until more detailed information is provided by both Fishermen's Energy (FERN) and Garden State Offshore Energy (GSOE). Neither developer has provided any cost-benefit comparisons of their original proposals to the proposed project modifications.

Offshore Wind Rebate Program- Request for Project Modification (Dockets #EO08121062, #EO08121604, and #EO08110971)

Source/Sponsor: 
New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU)
Creator/Author: 
New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU)
Description: 

The Board of Public Utilities (BPU) rules in this order that Garden State Offshore Energy (GSOE) has shown that cost savings may be achieved through use of Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR) technology associated with buoy-based system for collection of offshore wind data. It rules that ratepayer subsidies (rebate payment) should be limited to maximum of $3 million. The procedure for rebate payment should be modified to allow for reimbursement for the cost of each necessary component of the total project prior to completion of the total project (in incremements rather than lump sum). Reasonable and prudent geotechnical and geophysical work completed based on prior approval of previous approved work may be recovered.
