November 10th Bergen Offshore Wind Centre (BOW), GCE Ocean Technology and NORCE arranged the offshore wind conference Science Meets Industry in the University Aula at University of Bergen. This was an opportunity to share experiences and knowledge across the industry and academia.
BOW's Ignacio Herrera Anchustegui has contributed in a report concerning offshore decommissioning
Icnacio Herrera Anchustegui discusses key issues that require legal answers in offshore wind.
Maria Krutova and Mostafa Bakhoday-Paskyabi demonstrate the use of image processing techniques for the wake detection and possible applications for the wake analysis.
The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has appointed Sørlige Nordsjø II as an area for offshore wind deployment. This area is far from the shore, but production of hydrogen by electrolysis may be an opportunity.
In this text Håvard Haarstad and Dorothy J. Dankel discuss the potential tipping and tripping points in offshore wind.
Astrid Fonnes Myren's thesis investigates the sensitivity of offshore wind power production related to changes in key parameters
The project Large Offshore Wind Turbines (LOWT): Structural design accounting for non-neutral wind conditions is funded with 12 MNOK via the NFR FRIPRO program.
Ida Marie Solbrekke and Asgeir Sorteberg at BOW have developed a wind power data set that is mapping the wind power potential at the Norwegian continental shelf and in the surrounding ocean areas.
Associate Professor Ignacio Herrera-Anchustegui, in a joint submission with Dr Daria Shapovalova and Dr Eddy Wifa, provided a response to the EU consultation for the new strategy on offshore renewable energy strategy.
De under 30 er langt mer positive til vindkraft på land enn andre aldersgrupper, viser ny undersøkelse. Motstanden mot vindkraft på land er størst i områder med mest utbygging, som Sørlandet og Trøndelag. Havvind støttes av et stort flertall.
Vindturbiner på ulike steder i Nordsjøen kan bli en stabil kilde til energi om de blir koblet sammen. Er det vindstille et sted, er nemlig sjansen stor for at det blåser friskt et stykke unna.
Offshore wind energy has the largest CO2 mitigation potential of all ocean based renewable energy sources a new study from the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy finds
Kristin Guldbrandsen Frøysa har hatt eitt år i stillinga som energidirektør ved Universitetet i Bergen. Her er dei viktigaste erfaringane ho har gjort seg. 
Norway has some of the best wind resources in Europe and an oil and gas industry with a history spanning almost 50 years. We have the technology required for developing offshore wind farms. So why are we hesitating?
Sol- og vindkraft krever nye metoder for lagring av overskuddsenergi. En løsning er å omdanne elektrisitet til hydrogen og lagre den under bakken, mener UiB-professor Martin Fernø, som har vært med på et av verdens aller første forsøk med denne teknologien.
Allocations from the Academy Agreement between UiB and Equinor were announced on 28.06.2019. Four research projects on offshore wind received funding. In addition BOW was allocated funding for two Associate Professor II positions.
Floating wind turbines keep getting bigger, giving us more energy. A UiB-project will measure the wind's capabilities in an entirely new fashion, paving the way for more efficient wind energy at sea.
