DOE Funds Blade Research with Bayer MaterialScience

Bayer MaterialScience LLC was selected to receive a $750,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to support development and testing of advanced composite technologies and resin infusion processes for larger, more efficient and more powerful 1.5+ megawatt wind turbine blades.

The project, "Carbon Nanotube Reinforced Polyurethane Composites for Wind Turbine Blades," is an initiative to help accelerate development of advanced wind turbines, with a focus on overcoming technology barriers to broader application.

The company will focus on materials innovations that can help harness the wind and optimize wind turbine performance to support the electric power grid.
