Wind Energy special issue: offshore wind energy


Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to submit a manuscript for a special issue on ‘Offshore Wind Energy’ to be published in the journal Wind Energy in early 2009.

Papers on all topics directly relating to the development and operation of offshore wind energy are welcome, including environmental and societal aspects, economics, wind and wave loads, operation and maintenance, resource assessment and forecasting, policy, grid connection, and control issues. We are particularly interested in papers relating to large offshore wind farms and envisage: Volume 1 with a focus on environmental impacts, planning, economics, etc., and Volume 2 with a focus on technical issues.


The deadline for submission of manuscripts is on 15 April 2008.
