Wind turbine industry is continuously evaluating material systems to replace the current thermoset composite technologies. Since turbine blades are the key component in the wind turbines and the size of the blade is increasing in today’s wind design, the material selection has become crucial focusing several factors like less weight, less price, higher performance, longer life, ease of processing, and capability of recycling. In the present market scenario, wind industry needs to improve their business for onshore and for off-shore applications demonstrating the new blade designs and stating higher performance under severe environmental conditions. The current article reviews various material alternatives and demonstrates the advantageous and disadvantageous for future wind turbine blade developments.
