As part of the company´s continuing efforts to support alternative energy education, on July 13th, Goldwind has signed a donation agreement with Germany´s Saarland University. According to the terms of the agreement, the university will establish an endowed chair for topics related to wind energy technology. A suitable professor will be selected for the post by Saarland University in consultation with Goldwind. Goldwind will fund the chair by donating a total of 500,000 Euros over the course of five years. These funds will be used to compensate the professor, to finance relevant equipment and facilities, and to pay student assistants.
Goldwind is pleased to have the opportunity to work with one of Germany´s leading institutions in the field of wind energy research and hopes that similar programs can be established at other top universities around the globe.
