The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) this week announced it selected the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Partnership in Massachusetts and the Lone Star Wind Alliance in Texas to each receive as much as $2 million in test equipment to develop large-scale wind blade test facilities, accelerating the commercial availability of wind energy. These consortia were selected to negotiate cooperative research and development agreements (CRADAs) to design, build and operate new facilities to test the next generation of wind turbine blades. The facilities are expected to be operational in 2009.
