Wind Energy Research Center

A $2 million gift from BP America, Inc. to support the Wind Energy Research Center was announced in September 2007 and the center was formed in December 2007.

UW has the expertise to work on several of the critical research areas of interest to the wind energy community.

Worldwide, there are only a few energy "clusters" at universities working on wind energy issues.

The rate of wind energy usage and production is rapidly growing and the Center provides valuable research and collaborative contributions to advance this growing industry.

WERC provides a trained workforce that attracts companies to the state and thereby provides additional job opportunities.
