U.S. Mid-Size Wind Turbine Development Workshop


Detroit, MI - One of the most significant barriers to the growth in deployment of mid-size turbines in the United States is the lack of turbines; there are few mid-size turbines on the market today. To fill this technology gap, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will launch a Mid-size Wind Turbine Development Project in FY 2010 to facilitate the development and commercialization of mid-size wind turbines.

This project will assist U.S. manufacturers and wind turbine designers in producing near-term commercial value-engineered mid-size turbine prototypes.

The purpose of this workshop is to facilitate collaboration between wind turbine designers and U.S. manufacturers and build awareness of the DOE-NREL Mid-Size Wind Turbine Development Project.

This half-day workshop will include panel presentations by turbine designers and manufacturers and will provide attendees with an opportunity to network and to learn about the anatomy of a mid-size turbine and existing and future manufacturing opportunities.

The workship will be held November 6, 2009, 7:30 am - 1:00 pm, in Room W1-54 of Cobo Center, Detroit, MI.
