Mines researcher honored for wind technology commercializationGOLDEN, Colo., June 1, 2011 – Colorado School of Mines congratulates Assistant Professor Kathryn Johnson.
Johnson received the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association’s (CCIA) Cleantech Research Award for Excellence in Wind Technology Commercialization last week.
CCIA is a statewide organization dedicated to promoting Colorado's cleantech industry. It is the only industry-led, industry-focused cleantech group in the state. The organization’s mission is to provide advocacy, public policy leadership, development and education in the cleantech sector.
Johnson’s research interests focus on control systems, particularly applied to wind energy. Her recent projects have examined ways to reduce the cost of wind energy by using control to increase the energy captured without increasing system cost.
