July 12, 2022

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the colleges and universities selected to participate in Phase 1 of the 2023 Collegiate Wind Competition. During the first half of the 2022-2023 school year, these teams will develop preliminary designs for a prototype turbine and a hypothetical wind farm site and conduct outreach with the wind energy industry.

By early 2023, the competition organizers will narrow the Phase 1 cohort to 12 teams, who will be invited to participate in the competition in the second half of the school year. These teams will also be invited to present their work at the American Clean Power Association’s CLEANPOWER Conference & Exhibition in May 2023.

DOE announced the winners of the 2022 Collegiate Wind Competition in May. Kansas State University rose above 11 other competing teams to claim first place in the annual event.
