Research Facilities

NREL’s Flatirons Campus features state-of-the-art equipment and facilities that support fundamental wind energy research, technology development, experimentation, and validation of components and systems.

More than a renewable energy research site, Flatirons Campus is also home to the National Wind Technology Center (NWTC). Since 1992, NWTC scientists and engineers have pioneered the advancement of wind energy technology. Using field validation sites, dynamometers, structural research facilities, and composites manufacturing and integrated energy systems facilities, NWTC researchers and industry partners pursue wind energy innovations to create a clean, sustainable energy future powered by reliable, low-cost wind energy.

We invite industry partners to learn how they can access NWTC expertise and Flatirons Campus facilities to develop, demonstrate, and de-risk their wind technology in a safe environment.
