First Collegiate Wind Competition to be held in May

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Collegiate Wind Competition will be held May 5–7, 2014, alongside the American Wind Energy Association’s WINDPOWER® 2014 Conference & Exhibition at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Ten teams of undergraduate students from multiple disciplines will design and construct lightweight, portable small wind turbines intended to power small electronic devices. During the competition event, teams will present to a diverse panel of experts on current market drivers and deployment opportunities for the wind industry, pitch their business plans to industry leaders, and put their turbines to the test in an on-site wind tunnel.

For more information about the competition and its rules, see the DOE Collegiate Wind Competition 2014 web page.
