Wind energy

Wind turbines

Thanks to recent funding from government and industry, UW-Madison is emerging as a powerhouse in wind-energy research, technology transfer, and education. In spring 2009, the College of Engineering began a partnership with world-leading wind-turbine manufacturer Vestas that will support initiatives in education, research and development. And, grants from the U.S. Department of Energy have enabled faculty in three engineering departments to add to the existing curriculum several new wind-energy courses, including a suite of courses for professionals working in the industry.
