Webinar: Wind Turbines Reach for the Sky

December 2013

Player description


Wind power is one of the fastest growing forms of energy in the United States. In just one month last year, more than 5 gigawatts of wind power came on line in the U.S. - enough to power about 2.5 million homes. And engineers are working to make wind turbines larger, more efficient, and more reliable than ever. Join presenters Chris Schmitt, manager of wind application engineering at GE Wind, and Scott Rowland, Vice President, Engineering at Goldwind USA, for a live webinar to learn about the promises and challenges of harnessing wind power.

ASME Energy Forum is a new, year-long multi-media series that explores the technical aspects and workings of a broad range of energy sources and related technologies. From solar power and hydro to fuel cell vehicles and wind power, you'll get leading technical expert perspectives on how these energy sources and technologies work, the technical issues and challenges, and the economic implications for businesses.
