Energy Department Announces 2018 Collegiate Wind Competition Participants

Date: 4/11/2017

The Energy Department announced the 12 collegiate teams selected to participate in the third Collegiate Wind Competition. This competition, led by the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, challenges undergraduate students to design and build a model wind turbine based on market research and siting considerations, develop a business plan to market the products, and test the turbines against a set of rigorous performance criteria judged by a panel of wind industry leaders. Bringing together next-generation wind energy pioneers with today's industry leaders, the competition will take place during the annual American Wind Energy Association WINDPOWER Conference and Exhibition in Chicago, Illinois, on May 7-10, 2018.
