Offshore Wind Energy is growing continuously around the world, led by Europe, aiming to reach its goal of 35 GW offshore wind by 2020. Constant wind at sea will enable wind turbines to increase their full load hours during the year, and thereby, offshore wind becomes a reliable source of power with significant contributions to stabilizing the renewable-based grid. Further development and growth of offshore wind energy requires a continuation of technology improvements that lower the costs of offshore wind energy.
This Special Issue focuses on recent research and technology improvements, including, but not limited to:
- Transportation of offshore wind turbines
- Installation technologies
- Foundation technologies including floating offshore wind turbines
- Optimization of offshore wind farm layouts
- Optimization of used components and controls
- Improvements in aerodynamics and aero-elasticity
- Increased reliability and condition monitoring
- Optimal operation and (predictive) maintenance
- Improvement of power systems for offshore conditions
- Generator and power electronics for offshore wind
- Offshore data collection including communication, processing, and learning from data

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
