  • Process Induced Distortion in Composite Materials
    out this research Among those involved is CSU s Dr Don Radford who is conducting wind turbine blade research NNMI has a multilayered mission however overall the purpose is to enhance the U S s competitiveness in the field of advanced manufacturing technology processes along with promoting job growth and economic development The IACMI team includes states companies universities and national labs There are five application areas that fall within the scope of IACMI and shared research development and demonstration facilities will support each industry Composites manufacturing for the wind turbine blade segment Colorado National Renewable Energy Laboratory Colorado State University Colorado School of Mines University of Colorado Boulder Composites manufacturing for the automotive segment Michigan Michigan State University Composites manufacturing for the mobile pressure vessel segment Ohio University of Dayton Research Institute Design modeling and simulation Indiana Purdue University Composite materials and process Tennessee Oak Ridge National Laboratory The University of Tennessee University of Kentucky The goal of each area is to boost the development of manufacturing of affordable advanced fiber reinforced polymer composites IACMI members will work to develop low cost high rate production energy efficient manufacturing and recycling processes for composites applications The group of states involved in this project matched the 70 million that was federally funded The state of Colorado s contribution was 7 million In addition industry and academia have provided about 70 million of in kind cost share Colorado was strategically chosen to carry out wind turbine research because it has more blade facilities than any other state 22 wind industry manufacturing plants 29 operating wind farms and three wind research and workforce development institutions Reilly In 2014 wind energy provided 13 6 percent of all of Colorado s in state electricity production The wind industry in Colorado has created between 6 000

  • National Science Foundation Next Generation Photovoltaics Center at CSU
    Center at CSU October 2015 Dr W S Sampath site director of the National Science Foundation Next Generation Photovoltaics Center at Colorado State University has been working on advancing cadmium telluride CdTe Photovoltaics for more than 20 years at CSU Along with Dr Kurt Barth the associate site director of the NGPV Center the overall vision is to help establish PV electricity as a major source of energy in the United States and the world by leveraging cutting edge research The demand for advanced PV technology is at an all time high The PV industry has consistently seen 40 percent growth each year for more than a decade and it s also becoming increasingly competitive with traditional electricity generation due to technology advances Bloomberg recently reported that CdTe PV produces the lowest priced electricity in the nation today the prices have decreased 75 percent in the last four years and the trend is predicted to continue The NGPV Center is unique in PV research for a variety of reasons It s a National Science Foundation Industry University Cooperative Research Center The NGPV Center uses CdTe as a semiconductor as opposed to silicon based semiconductors to extract solar energy CdTe uses 100 times less semiconductor material that can be 100 times less pure than silicon CdTe is less expensive to manufacture readily available safe 100 percent recyclable better performing and is in general a more effective material for this purpose The NGPV Center has helped to streamline the manufacturing process of solar panels These advances have directly enabled CdTe PV to become the leading PV technology in the U S The NGPV Center invites the industry to join its mission by becoming members Contact Dr W S Sampath if interested sampath engr colostate edu With member support the NGPV Center can
