Power Lunch Lecture Series: The Future of Wind Research

National Renewable Energy Laboratory Education Center

15013 Denver West Parkway
Golden, CO 80401

Phone: 303.384.6565

By Patrick Moriarty, Ph.D., Group Manager, Systems Integrations, NREL

From the small turbines of the first modern wind rush to the large utility scale wind plants of today, NREL researchers have developed technology breakthroughs that dramatically lowered the cost of wind energy and spurred sustained growth. Learn about NREL’s current research into large wind plants, grid integration and offshore wind that will bolster wind’s position as a dominant future energy source.

Dr. Moriarty is the lead of the Wind Energy Systems team at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) where he has worked since 2001.  Dr. Moriarty's research focuses are wind turbine design, systems engineering, aerodynamics and aeroacoustics of wind turbines and resource assessment for wind plants.  Currently, he is leading NREL’s wind plant aerodynamics work focused on wind plant and atmospheric interactions. He leads an International Energy Agency Task on wind turbine wake model validation.  He has published over 100 papers related to wind energy and serves as associate editor for Wind Energy.
