In 2004, the first Sandia Blade Workshop was held in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The average diameter of a rotor was 74 meters with just over 6 gigawatts of total installed wind capacity.
Approaching 2018, the average rotor diameter has grown to over 108 meters with 85 gigawatts installed. Join the conversation with global leaders in rotor research at the 2018 Sandia National Laboratories' Wind Turbine Blade Workshop to propose solutions for tomorrow’s challenges. This year’s workshop will be facilitated in partnership with Texas Tech University’s National Wind Institute.
