A research report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science this week suggests that connecting offshore wind projects with submerged high-voltage electricity transmission cable could help to level power generation from these projects. The study was conducted across five years at eleven offshore sites and concludes that offshore wind project developers ought not simply seek the windiest single site for a project. Instead, developers should approach wind projects by analyzing broad meteorological data and load requirements across an entire region in order to optimize total power output.
