Energy Websites, Media Note UMaine Wind Turbine Research

Comments from Habib Dagher, director of the UMaine Advanced Structures and Composites Center, were included in a news report on the Co.EXIST innovative energy, education, food and health website about the feasibility of harnessing some of the untapped energy potential in offshore wind. UMaine is collaborating with Norway’s Statoil North America corporation and with a public-private DeepCwind consortium to place an experimental offshore wind farm in the Gulf of Maine. SustainableBusiness.com also carried an article about the University of Maine leading the trend toward offshore floating wind turbines and a $4 million U.S. Department of Energy grant the university received to advance the research and development of offshore turbine materials. A Bangor Daily News article about UMaine’s wind energy research quoted Maine Public Utilities Commission Chair Thomas Welch as saying that even though the project cannot guarantee economic benefits, it would be a bonanza for the state as a leader in an evolving industry if the planned demonstration wind project is successful.
