Iowa State Addresses National Challenge in Wind Energy
With the world’s marketed energy consumption projected to grow by 50 percent over the next 20 years, the U.S. Department of Energy has challenged the nation to produce 20 percent of its total power from wind by 2030. The imperative to produce energy from wind and other nonpolluting, renewable resources will only become stronger in the years to come.
As one of the leading wind energy-producing states in the nation, Iowa is key to any effort to realize the Department of Energy’s 2030 target. And, as an institution dedicated to science and technology, Iowa State University is particularly well positioned to play a central role in the research and development of wind technologies to help America realize its 2030 goals.
Wind energy is a key component of the College of Engineering's commitment to sustainable energy research.
