The US Energy Department and the Department’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory have announced funding for projects led by Pika Energy, Northern Power Systems, Endurance Wind Power, and Urban Green Energy that will help drive down the cost of small and medium-sized wind energy systems.

Through the second round of the Competitiveness Improvement Project (CIP), the teams will receive a total of US$ 1.35 million between them. In support of the Energy Department’s Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative, this funding aims to help US manufacturers improve their turbine designs and manufacturing processes to reduce hardware costs, improve efficiency and eventually earn certification from accredited third-party certification bodies, which issue easy-to-understand labels showing a turbine has met performance and safety testing requirements set by the wind industry.
