NREL Innovations Contribute to an Award-Winning Small Wind Turbine (Fact Sheet)

Research output: NRELFact Sheet

Abstract

The Skystream 3.7 wind turbine is the result of a decade-long collaboration between the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Southwest Windpower, a commercially successful small wind turbine manufacturer. NREL drew heavily on its research experience to incorporate innovations into the Skystream 3.7, including a unique blade design that makes the wind turbine more efficient and quieterthan most.
