    Offshore wind-generated electricity is foreseen as a major contributor to the U.S. energy supply. However, commercialization is extremely cost-prohibitive due to the expense of wind turbine foundations. The foundations alone can account for up to 25% of the total cost of a wind farm. To date, the U.S. has no standards for the design of foundations in the offshore wind industry, but Dr. Jacket & concrete foundations: which is the most New Energy ,11-02-2013· However, experience at some offshore wind farms shows that the overall cost of using concrete foundations has worked out higher than jackets. One reason for this is because you need to dredge an area of the seabed to make it flat to accommodate the concrete foundation. That’s not the case for jackets.
