The 2018-2020 Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Triennial Investment Plan identified the need to advance manufacturing techniques of wind turbine components for larger turbines; introduce new composite material for taller land-based wind towers and larger blades; and develop and deploy a cost-effective real-time remote monitoring and control system for offshore and land-based wind turbines (Strategic Initiative 4.2.1 and 4.2.2). Strategic Initiative 7.3.1 called for investigating the risks to sensitive species and habitats from renewable energy projects in California, including offshore wind. ...

This workshop will gather information and feedback from stakeholders and experts about key challenges associated with the design, manufacturing, and deployment of larger rotors and blades, taller land-based wind towers, cost-effective real-time monitoring control systems, and research to survey and monitor environmental responses to offshore wind energy projects in California.
