BLADES OF GLORY: An Energy.gov Mini-Doc - The 2016 Collegiate Wind Competition

In this short documentary, we follow three student teams who participated in the 2016 U.S. Department of Energy Collegiate Wind Competition in New Orleans.

The competition provides undergraduate students real-world skills they need to enter tomorrow’s clean energy workforce. The challenge is to:

  1. develop and deliver a business plan,
  2. establish a deployment strategy, and
  3. build and test a wind turbine.

Go to Energy.gov/CWC to learn more about the competition and why it’s important for America’s wind energy future.
