The Wind Power Research Center is being created at California State Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo, California. This center brings together faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and industry partners to conduct applied research and education in support of the wind power industry. Particular emphasis is given to research which serves the needs of manufacturers of smaller wind turbines, and to educating engineers who are well trained to work in all segments of the wind power industry.
