Scott Schreck joined the NWTC in 1998 and has served in various roles within the center, ranging from basic and applied research to utility-scale technology development. Scott currently directs DOE's Turbine Dynamics and Inflow Research Facility, which is aimed at understanding turbine aerodynamics and atmospheric physics that govern energy production and machine structural loads. Early in his NREL career, he led the Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics team in applied research for discovering, characterizing, and modeling phenomena crucial to wind turbine efficiency and commercial viability. Major activities have included planning and analyses of experiments in the NASA Ames 80' x 120' wind tunnel, as well as establishment of IEA Annex 20, a multinational consortium of turbine aerodynamics researchers from Asia, Europe, and North America developing and validating turbine aerodynamics models.
