Wind/Water Energy

Wind and water energy are being investigated as two key renewable energy sources through collaboration of expertise in atmospheric science, mechanical and aerospace engineering, materials science, electrical engineering, applied economics and management and business. Using creative turbine designs, researchers are working to develop mechanisms to generate energy from the winds and tidal flows of the Earth's natural landscape. Stochastic control and optimization theory, and economic modeling  are being applied to renewable energy integration and remote sensing techniques are applied to tracking of wildlife.
