Interest in the wind turbine industry originally spawned from the oil embargo in the 1980s and ever since has increasing the efficiency and lowering the cost of energy (COE) been aspired by wind turbine designers and manufactures. This continues to be the primary target of the wind turbine manufactures today, who must lower the current COE of wind energy by 40% by 2020 to stay competitive. This project investigates one of the most critical challenges in reaching this target; innovative blade design.
