US Energy Department backs wind turbine research and development: DoE allocates $2 million to support manufact...

On 18 September the US Energy Department announced $2 million for two organizations (Keystone Towers and Iowa State University) that will advance technologies to harness stronger winds available at higher heights, potentially increasing the amount of clean, renewable electricity the nation produces. Through innovative construction processes that will cost-effectively manufacture taller wind turbine towers (around 400 feet), these projects in Iowa and Massachusetts will help reduce the cost of wind energy and expand the geographic areas where wind turbines can successfully be deployed in the United States.1 Keystone Towers of Boston, Massachusetts will implement an on-site spiral welding system that will enable turbine towers to be produced directly at or near the installation site, freeing projects of transportation constraints that often limit turbine height.
