The world's first 3D printed wind turbine wins award: Energy Digital

Sandia National Laboratories has been awarded the 2018 Technology focus award from Technology Transfer. The research and development laboratories, ran by the National Technology and Engineering Solutions of Sandia, won the award for its additively manufactured wind turbine blades. The blades were created using a 3D-printed mould, which it thought to be a more time and cost-effective method of manufacturing for the renewable energy industry. “The wind department at Sandia has expertise is designing blades, but our group doesn't work with additive manufacturing,” commented Josh Paquette, Researcher at Sandia.
