Albano, Leonard D.
This project developed a framework to determine the feasibility of retrofitting a wind turbine onto a pre-existing structure. After an initial screening based on a set of criteria, the framework then analyzed candidate’s life cycle costs and structural effects on the building in order to determine a feasible turbine. The framework was then applied to the Gateway Park Phase II building to investigate the possibility of retrofitting a wind turbine.
