MN2020: Winds of Progress--University of Minnesota's Rosemount Wind Power Research Station

Eolos is the Ancient Greek god of wind and the namesake for a new wind power research station at the University of Minnesota's UMore Park in Rosemount. Launched in 2010 with grants from the Recovery Act and the US Department of Energy, the station will let technicians, physicists and civil engineers research how to make wind power more efficient and safe for future energy needs.

The University of Minnesota is launching a new curriculum of study focusing on wind turbine implementation and installation for future sites across the nation.
