To provide basic information on wind energy and wind power technology, NCCER is developing a stand-alone module entitled Introduction to Wind Energy. This module defines how wind generates power, discusses the two wind turbine types (horizontal and vertical-axis), and covers the advantages and disadvantages of wind-generated electricity.


This module is the first in a series supporting a three-year curriculum of wind turbine maintenance training that is based upon the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Core Skill Set for Wind Turbine Service Technicians.
