This newsletter highlights key activities, articles on current research projects, latest reports, papers, and events published by Sandia. This monthly newsletter is intended for wind industry partners, stakeholders, universities and potential partners.
Sandia hosts several Wind Workshops that bring together wind energy professionals from industry, universities, and national laboratories to discuss challenges, issues, and solutions for wind turbine blades.
Representatives from the federal agencies participating in the Wind Turbine Radar Interference Mitigation (WTRIM) Working Group held a special Government-Industry Radar/Airspace Listening Session at the American Wind Energy Association AWEA WindPower 2015 event in Orlando, […]
Large-eddy simulation (LES) of wind farms with wind-turbine parameterization is emerging as a powerful tool for improving existing wind farm performance and lowering maintenance costs—and assessing the potential sites for installing wind farms.
Wind-turbine blades pose a unique set of inspection challenges: from very thick and attentive spar-cap structures to porous bond lines, varying core material, and a multitude of manufacturing defects of interest. The need for viable, […]
Offshore wind energy could potentially play a significant role in helping the nation establish a diversified energy-generation portfolio composed of clean, renewable resources. A current obstacle to offshore wind energy is that most projections put […]
