Abstract:

The wind turbine industry is in need of lighter weight and lower cost support towers. Composite materials can offer many advantages to small wind systems. But also, the technology developed in the Phase I can apply to very large wind turbines up to 5 MW, and in environments of the future, such as off-shore in the US in deep water.During Phase I, Ebert Composites has developed a hybrid composite pole support that can be adapted to very large wind turbine structures. Working with the University of Maine, Ebert has developed a low cost hybrid pole structure that has great potential for off-shore applications. Additionally, the technology can scale to any sized installation including small wind at 100 KW.Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: Ebert
