The Joint Industry Programme (JIP) on Offshore Renewables is managed by the Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N) and involves PhD students, NTU Profs, and Local and Multi-National Companies who are engaged in cutting-edge research into various aspects of Offshore Renewable Energy. Today more than 20 doctoral projects are in progress, spanning resource forecasting, sub-structure studies, power generation, transmission, grid, installation, and maintenance.
This research is being developed with leading companies engaged in various parts of the value chain, such as turbine manufacturers, transport and installation firms, small technology firms and classification societies. Commercial firms in this consortium are: Lloyds, Vestas, Gamesa, DNV, Keppel Corporation, Ceentek, IBM, DHI and CIMNE. In addition, the research is supported by leading research partners such as National Renewable Energy Labs (NREL) in USA, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), the University of Colorado, and Danish Technology University (DTU). The consortium platform provides various benefits, including alignment of complementary technologies, managed open innovation, shared resources, costs and knowledge. Such efforts help the co-creation of technology, supply chain, design rules and new markets. Research outcomes have been published in international peer reviewed journals such as IEEE and Wind Engineering, and in international conferences and reports with our international partners in NREL and NTNU.
