THIRD FRONTIER GRANT TO ENGINEERING SCHOOL TO FUND FIRST TURBINE RESEARCH CENTER ON U.S. CAMPUS
The Ohio Third Frontier Commission Wright Projects Program has recommended awarding a $3 million grant to Case Western Reserve University. The funds, combined with contributions from industry partners, will support a $6 million research center dedicated to wind turbine development and education.
Through the Ohio Wind Energy Research and Commercialization Center (Ohio-WERC Center), Case Western Reserve plans to install three wind turbines on or near campus, making it possibly the largest university facility of its kind in the country dedicated to innovation and commercialization. The turbines will offer opportunities for local companies to create, test and commercialize wind energy-related technologies.
