Energy Department Selects Four Projects to Develop High-Efficiency, Lightweight Wind Turbine Generators for Tall Wind and Offshore Applications

May 2, 2019

The U.S. Department of Energy selected four projects totaling up to $8 million to develop next-generation wind turbine drivetrain technologies that will facilitate the continued growth of wind turbines for land-based tall wind and offshore applications. These projects will develop more efficient, smaller, and lighter-weight generators that will lower costs and make wind power more affordable.
