UDaily: UD's wind turbine in Lewes marks fifth year of clean energy generation, research

According to a recent Department of Energy report, wind power is expected to contribute 35 percent of the nation’s energy by 2050, up from 5 percent today.

Since 2010, the University of Delaware has been a leader in generating carbon-free energy. This past June, UD marked the fifth anniversary of the installation of the wind turbine (a Gamesa G90-2.0 MW model) located on the Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes, a joint collaboration between UD and Gamesa.
