James G.P. Dehlsen, founder and chairman of the board of Carpinteria, Calif.-based Clipper Windpower Inc., has been inducted into the National Environmental Hall of Fame during a formal ceremony that took place in Chicago.

"With his founding of Zond in 1980, among the nation's first and most successful wind energy companies, Dehlsen's pioneering work in wind energy guided the start-up of the global wind industry, forming the roots of some of today's industry leaders in both turbine manufacturing and wind project development," says Allen Rubin, coordinator of the Environmental Hall of Fame.

In 2001, Dehlsen and his son formed Clipper Windpower. Through the company, Dehlsen introduced advanced technology, which enables wind turbines to reach greater scale, economically. The company's 2.5 MW Liberty turbine, since start-up of manufacturing in 2006, has been deployed into five projects in the U.S.

Dehlsen's achievements have been recognized with the Lifetime Achievement Award given by the American Wind Energy Association, and the Danish Medal of Honor given by Prince Henrik of Denmark.
