Mines researcher, NREL part of $3.56M study on wind energy

GOLDEN, Colo., Feb. 3, 2016 – Colorado School of Mines Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Kathryn Johnson, who also holds a joint appointment as a scientist at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), was one of six researchers who received a $3.56-million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) to develop a low cost of energy 50-MW turbine. The small-scale design will produce more than six times the power output of the largest current turbines, be longer than two football fields and have blades that resemble a palm tree…  Read more…
