Join DNV GL, along with the U.S. Department of Energy and Wood Mackenzie, on April 10th at 2 pm EST for our webinar on R&D Pathways for Supersized Blades.
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
2 pm EST | 11 am PST
Over the past decade, the U.S. wind energy industry has achieved significant improvements in energy production and cost efficiency driven in part by increased turbine, blade, and tower size.
This webinar is an opportunity to hear from the study sponsor and key authors behind a recent report on ‘supersized’ wind turbine blades, obtain additional insights and offers a forum for questions and answers on the following topics:
- Study drivers & needs, stakeholder method
- Blade trends in the industry
- Key findings from the study
- Next steps for the future of these R&D activities
In collaboration with Berkeley Lab and the U.S. Department of Energy, DNV GL released a new report, R&D pathways for supersized wind turbine blades, focused on the upcoming challenges around logistics and transportation the industry will face in relation to turbine size. As turbine component sizes increase and logistical challenges develop, finding new solutions are more important than ever for the industry.
