The Department of Energy has awarded $3.7 million to the Lake Erie Energy Development Corp. (LEEDCo) to continue engineering work on a proposed wind turbine project in Lake Erie. This will allow LEEDCo to continue with their offshore wind research program, and is the third grant they have been awarded for this project.

The wind research program is building a 20 megawatt wind farm situated in Lake Erie. This photograph shows the gathering of samples of the lake bed where LEEDCo wants to build the wind farm.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The U.S. Department of Energy is awarding $40 million to the Lake Erie Energy Development Corp. to build a six-turbine pilot wind farm in Lake Erie by the end of 2018.

Case Western, Carnegie Mellon, West Virginia University, and the University of Pittsburgh have begun a collaboration to attract government and corporate funding for energy research. By combining their resources, these universities believe they will be more competitive with large research centers for more high- profile projects, bringing more research dollars into the region.

Researchers from the Great Lakes Energy Institute and Case Western Reserve University were on NPR’s The Sound of Ideas last week to talk about solar power.
