DWT gave a presentation the the Distributed Wind Energy Association on Feb 27, as well as participating in the 2 day conference. Perhaps most interesting was being involved in working on the new standards for the small wind in the US. High tides float all boats!
DWT received a Competitive Improvement Project grant from The United States Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory for $197K to develop and validate our turbine

The end of the week here at DWT on the Clarkson campus and a great day of data. Maximum wind speed observed was a little over 15 m/s (34 mph) and the turbine performed very well with a maximum output limited to 3543 W. Tracking was great and no structural vibration or resonance issues were observed. A video clip with the sun setting is a nice way to head into the weekend!
Snow has settled onto the campus, but the Gen 1 unit is ready to produce! Bring on the wind!
