Wind energy is the fastest growing sources of sustainable energy generation in the world. Wind is a free and inexhaustible source of energy that does not release pollutants into the air or water or contribute to global warming. Researchers at Georgia Tech are developing technologies to harness the wind’s kinetic energy for large-scale power generation. Research is focused on improving the design and performance and reducing the costs of wind power technologies. Core areas of expertise include wind turbine, rotor/generator and blade design optimization, forecasting for wind energy power production and operational safety, wind energy policy, and offshore wind farm feasibility studies.
