Episode Description:

Kathryn Johnson, an electrical engineer at the the Colorado
School of mines, studies large utility-scale wind turbines. Kathryn's
research aims to make the turbines more efficient in order to capture as
much of the wind's energy as possible. We also visited NSF's National Center
for Atmospheric Research, where scientists are working with local utility
companies to create an advanced wind energy prediction system. Using data
from sensors mounted on each turbine, the system generates a forecast
specific to each turbine on a wind farm. This helps the utility company
provide as much energy as possible from clean sources.
