The http://www1.eere.energy.gov/windandhydro/wind_dist_tech.htmlWind Energy Program at the U.S. Department of Energy continued working with several small wind industry partners in 2006 to develop and test new systems and components. Working with Southwest Windpower, researchers at NREL's National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) conducted performance optimization and blade-fatigue tests on the company's new Skystream wind turbine. The 1.8-kW turbine, developed in partnership with DOE, won the Best of What's New Award from Popular Science Magazine and was listed as a best invention for 2006 by Time magazine. The new turbine has fully integrated electrical components, costs less, is easier to install, and more quiet to operate.
