As wind technology grows in scale and productivity, researchers continue to look for ways to boost the energy captured while driving down costs.
In a new study, Increasing Wind Turbine Tower Heights: Opportunities and Challenges PDF, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researchers examine opportunities for increasing the height of wind turbine hubs—where the turbine drivetrain and rotors attach—and the conditions and locations where taller towers would have the most impact.READ MORE
