Pitt researchers tap into energy potential of offshore wind

In the search for renewable energy resources, offshore wind power holds tremendous potential for the United States, a country that is not only surrounded by two oceans and the Gulf of Mexico, but also is home to the Great Lakes. However, this type of energy still makes up only a very small proportion of U.S. energy resources.
