About This Topic
Energy consumption has been on the rise continuously across the world. One drawback of such growth is the increasing amount of greenhouse gas emissions due to the use of fossil fuels as primary energy sources, which represents a major problem for the planet. Such emissions are driving forces for climate change, which manifests in several ways, such as global warming and extreme climate phenomena, i.e., torrential rains, droughts and others. Renewable energy sources are discussed to be a possible solution, due to their low emissions and potential contribution to de-carbonization of the world economy. Among them, wind energy has become one of the most promoted and investigated renewable energies during the past decades and its presence has become increasingly prevalent across the world. In recent years, as increasing amount of territory employs in inland wind energy installations, some states begin to discuss about the concept of offshore wind farms. The building and management of such installations, however, involve many challenges. The aim of this special issue is to publish papers discussing major topics associated to the demands that offshore wind farms present, such as:

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. Guidelines for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts are available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Energy and Power Technology is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by LIDSEN.

This paper presents the case for the use of HF radar to provide wave, current and wind measurements and maps during the surveying, resource and impact assessment, construction, maintenance and performance assessment phases of an offshore fixed or floating wind farm or other marine renewable project. The data presented are from the Celtic Sea [...]
Testing the Correlation between Prior Knowledge of - and Visualisation Guided WTPs for Reducing the Visual Impacts Visual from Offshore Wind Farms
Received: 28 April 2020; Published: 12 August 2020; doi: 10.21926/jept.2003015
Visual external costs are significant elements in the cost-benefit analysis of wind farm locations. This has been demonstrated well in the literature. However, in the assessment of the visual costs, a large share of the earlier studies used no or only simplistic visualizations of the visual impacts at stake. The cost estimates thus rely on [...]
Computational Micromechanics for the Optimization of Compression Strength of Unidirectional Carbon Fiber Composites for Use in Wind Turbine Blades
Received: 15 April 2020; Published: 09 June 2020; doi: 10.21926/jept.2002010
As wind turbine blades grow longer, new design parameters gain additional importance such as blade weight, tip deflection and material cost. These parameters require designers to relook at carbon fiber as a potential design solution. However, the composite materials in wind turbine blades are subjected to significant compressive loading, and [...]
Assessment of Stability-Based Characterizations of North Carolina’s Offshore Wind Resource Using a Nested Boundary Layer Method
Received: 10 April 2020; Published: 30 April 2020; doi: 10.21926/jept.2002006
SODAR wind profiler measurements from a land-based site within 1000 m of the coastal ocean are compared with predicted wind profiles based on upwind conditions and a stability-based model. The thermally dynamic influence of the Gulf Stream near the site of measurement, Cape Hatteras, has been found to complicate wind speed estimati [...]
