NREL Distributes Wind Competitiveness Improvement Project Round Four Funding

Date: 5/13/2016

The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is awarding four subcontracts under the fourth round of funding through the Department's Distributed Wind Competitiveness Improvement Project (CIP). The CIP aims to help manufacturers of small and mid-size wind turbines improve their turbine design and manufacturing processes while reducing costs and improving efficiency as they work toward certification. Certification for these turbines is important because it demonstrates to consumers that they meet performance and safety requirements. Two awardees were selected in the Certification Testing category: Primus Wind Power, Inc., of Lakewood, Colorado, and Bergey Windpower of Norman, Oklahoma. Two awardees were selected in the Type Certification category: Northern Power Systems of Barre, Vermont, and Endurance Wind Power, Inc., of Seattle, Washington.
