The Women of Wind Energy (WoWE) awarded Dr. Julie Lundquist the Rising Star award

In 2013, The Women of Wind Energy (WoWE) awarded Dr. Julie Lundquist the Rising Star award for her outstanding contributions to the wind energy industry in the early stages of her career. We are pleased to have Dr. Lundquist as the keynote speaker at the spring WoWE meeting.

In 2013, The Women of Wind Energy (WoWE) awarded Dr. Julie Lundquist the Rising Star award for her outstanding contributions to the wind energy industry in the early stages of her career. In her first five years in the industry, she became an expert in on the science underlying wind turbine siting. In particular, she has performed cutting edge research projects to measure turbine wakes.


We are pleased to have Dr. Lundquist as the keynote speaker at the spring WoWE meeting. Her talk, titled "Downwind Impacts of Wind Energy: Measurements and Simulations of Wind Turbine Wakes" will highlight her innovative scientific investigations in this exciting area of wind energy research. The meeting is free and open to the public.

The Rising Star Award is given to a woman who is relatively new to wind energy and is already making significant professional contributions by demonstrating unusual talent, dedication and innovation in her renewable energy work. Dr. Kristin Larson, Director of Forecast Data Services at the Global Weather Corporation, nominated Dr. Lundquist for the award. "Dr. Lundquist's research moved ahead the frontier of wind energy forecasting and her current observational research can revolutionize wind resource assessment. Accurately measuring wind turbine wake effects is more and more important as the penetration of wind energy grows."

"Dr. Lundquist is a shining example for others in the field and she will no doubt inspire future generations of talented women to continue to discover new advancements for wind power," commented Trudy Forsyth, Managing Director at Wind Advisors Team and Board Member for the Women of Wind Energy.

Dr. Lundquist's keynote presentation at the Women of Wind Energy Spring meeting is free and open to the public. The lecture is in the Bechtel Collaboratory at the Discovery Learning Center on the campus of the University of Colorado – Boulder from 6 – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday April 29th.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
