Wind Energy Development Subject of UW Person Lecture Friday  

“Engineering Challenges for Future Wind Energy Development” will be the subject of the University of Wyoming College of Engineering’s H.T. Person Lecture, Friday, Oct. 13, at 2 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Senate Chambers.

Neil Kelley, is a meteorologist specializing in wind energy research at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colo., will be the speaker. He will discuss the engineering challenges that must be met to meet the goal of wind energy providing 20 percent of the nation’s electrical energy needs by 2030.

Active in the American Meteorological Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Kelly has written papers and reports on the generation, impact, and control of wind turbine low-frequency noise. Since 1988 he has concentrated his research on the influence of atmospheric turbulence on wind turbine structural loads and vibratory response.

In 1982 he received an NREL Outstanding Achievement Award for his work on wind turbine low-frequency noise and more recently received an Outstanding Achievement Award from the U.S. Department of Energy for his research on the effects of turbulence on wind turbines.

The H.T. Person Endowment Committee sponsors the lecture. The late Hjalmar Thorval Person was regarded as an outstanding teacher who served UW from 1929-68 and was UW’s 16th president in 1967. His legacy led to formation of the endowment committee, which has helped the College of Engineering raise pledges to purchase equipment for teaching laboratories and to support continuing guest lectures. The H.T. Person Chair in Engineering, UW’s first fully endowed chair, was created in his honor.
