Composite materials are frequently used in the energy sector due to their many properties such as light weight, high strength, heat resistance and corrosion resistance, which contribute to cost reduction and efficiency improvement.

The use of composite materials in renewable energy is playing an increasingly vital role in the production of structures that enable the use of sustainable energy sources. Factors such as reduced weight compared to metallic structures, reduced transportation and assembly costs, and most importantly, the need for lower maintenance costs throughout the life of the structure, have begun to position composites as a de facto material that provides economical solutions to large-scale projects.

The lightweight and complex blades of wind turbines are manufactured using composite materials in molds designed with minimum labor and cost. This has been very effective in the advancement of composite materials in this sector. Currently, research and development services are aimed at meeting the size increase needed in turbine and engine blades for land-based and offshore systems.

In addition, the use of lighter fiber-reinforced polymer materials for turbine blades generates more power per unit volume.
