The U.S. Department of Energy Wind and Water Power Program has funded Sandia National Labs and its partner Montana State University to conduct extensive testing and analysis on wind turbine blade and more recently water power materials in support of the industry and research communities.

The results of over 12,000 tests conducted since 1989 have been collected and published annually in a public database along with numerous technical publications analyzing the key trends and technical results of the tests. Supporting publications can be found at the Composite Technologies Research Group at Montana State University.

In order to better understand the users of the database, solicit feedback on potential changes, and notify users of updates, we are requesting some basic information in the form below.  If you would like to provide feedback or suggestions on future database releases, please email your comments to
