The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO), in collaboration with the interagency Wind Turbine-Radar Interference Mitigation Working Group, released a Request for Information (RFI) seeking input on challenges and opportunities relating to the co-existence of wind energy and radar. Public feedback to this RFI will be used to help inform investments in this topic from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s Wind Energy Technology Research & Development program.
This RFI seeks input on:
- Siting and operation challenges related to wind turbine-radar interference.
- Potential radar and/or wind turbine mitigation technologies that currently exist or are in development to address wind turbine-radar interference.
- Commercialization and market adoption of wind-radar interference mitigation measures, and what obstacles need to be overcome to accelerate commercialization and maximize adoption.
- Effective solicitation processes and implementation strategies to enable the commercialization and market adoption of wind-radar interference mitigation measures.
For more information, read the full RFI. Responses must be submitted electronically to [email protected] no later than 5:00 pm (ET) on January 12, 2024.
