Melinda Marquis


Research Activity per Year


Personal Profile

Melinda works to identify ways that offshore wind can enable and shape the transformation of the current power system to one that is sustainable, low-cost and reliable. This involves interconnection capacity, cost characterization, regional transmission expansion requirements, assessments of the impacts and value of offshore wind to the grid, power system production costs, characterization of resource adequacy contributions, system reliability and resilience. 

Research Interests

Comparing the status quo of offshore wind (OSW) transmission approach (generator-lead-line) to meshed networks and backbones that connect multiple OSW plants to the onshore grid

Grid services that OSW can provide

Offshore atmospheric science
