DOE, NREL To Hold Design And Manufacturing Workshops

To help close the existing technology gap and facilitate the development and commercialization of midsize wind turbines, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have launched the Midsize Wind Turbine Development Project.

NREL is sponsoring workshops in Ohio and Oklahoma – both facilitated by Cleveland-based the Great Lakes Wind Network – to build awareness of the DOE-NREL Midsize Wind Turbine Development Project and to encourage collaboration to assist U.S. manufacturers and wind turbine designers in producing near-term commercial value-engineered midsize turbine prototypes.

Workshops will feature networking, panel presentations by turbine designers and manufacturers, information on NREL's National Wind Technology Center, and existing and future manufacturing opportunities.

Workshops will take place on March 24 at the University of Cincinnati's College of Applied Science, and on April 8 at Northeastern State University in Oklahoma.
