New Database Helps Quantify Materials Needed to Support Growth in Wind Energy

Reaching the Biden administration’s clean energy goals will mean significant expansion of wind energy. But constructing these wind energy facilities requires more than just ample wind. Energy technologies are built from a variety of raw materials, like concrete and nickel. And supplies of some of those materials are not as plentiful as the wind that fuels the power plants.

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released a first-of-its-kind database that catalogs specific materials, such as minerals and other basic components, used to build wind turbines, as well as solar panels. Alongside the new Renewable Energy Materials Properties Database (REMPD), researchers at DOE’s National Renewable Energy... ... More: Official Press Release U.S. Department of Energy
