NREL: National Wind Technology Center (NWTC)

The National Wind Technology Center, located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains near Boulder, Colorado, is a world-class research facility managed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy. NWTC researchers work with members of the wind energy industry to advance wind power technologies that lower the cost of wind energy through research and development of state-of-the-art wind turbine designs. The web site provides information on applied research, turbine research and cooperative research and testing, as well as information on working with industry. A tour of the NWTC facilities is offered, as well as a section geared toward consumers, which offers information on wind energy for the home or business, a section on education, training and resources, and links for further information. The NWTC library is a publications database that provides access to documents written and/or edited by NWTC staff members and subcontractors.
