Funded by DOE’s Wind Energy Technologies Office, the Big Adaptive Rotor project works to design and enable the next generation of land-based wind turbines with rotors that stretch 206 meters (m) in diameter, which will increase capacity factors by 10% or more over a typical land-based turbine.

While wind turbines with larger rotors have advantages, the length and width of their blades creates transportation challenges to make true on the adage, bigger is better.
