MIT Wind Energy Projects in Action

About Us

MIT Wind Energy Projects in Action is a project oriented student team focused on learning wind energy engineering through hands on experience. WEPA works with MIT Facilities, neighboring municipalities, donors and members of industry to implement projects that produce wind based renewable energy solutions and to advance knowledge on use and strategies of such energy approaches through research and educational outreach. Current WEPA projects involve wind resource assessment and project feasibility studies on the MIT campus and in neighboring communities.
