The Collegiate Wind Competition returns during WINDPOWER 2018
The bi-annual Collegiate Wind Competition, sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE), is back. Students from across the country will head to WINDPOWER 2018 in Chicago this May to test their skills and engineering know-how. The potential designers of wind energy’s next big technological breakthrough will be in attendance, showcasing business plans, model wind turbines, and designing hypothetical utility-scale wind farms. A team of wind industry leaders will serve as judges for the event.
AWEA is the national trade association of the U.S. wind energy industry. We represent 1,000 member companies and over 114,000 jobs in the U.S. economy, serving as a powerful voice for how wind works for America. Members include global leaders in wind power and energy development, turbine manufacturing, and component and service suppliers. They gather each year at the Western Hemisphere’s largest wind energy event, the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition, next in Denver, June 1-4, 2020. WINDPOWER 2020 will be housed within CLEANPOWER, the new exhibition hub for utility-scale renewable energy, bringing together wind power, solar power, and energy storage industries.
