The Collegiate Wind Competition returns during WINDPOWER 2018

3/06/18
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 for the U.S. wind industry, the largest source of renewable energy in the country. We represent 1,000 member companies, 120,000 jobs in the U.S. economy, and a nationwide workforce located across all 50 states. AWEA serves 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 most efficient and targeted event for utility-scale renewable companies, the AWEA CLEANPOWER Conference & Exhibition, next in Indianapolis, June 7-10, 2021. An outgrowth of the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition, CLEANPOWER is the first trade show focused exclusively on the utility-scale renewable power sector, bringing together all the major developers, utilities, OEMs, suppliers and buyers under one roof.
