UPWIND

Towards the large wind turbines of tomorrow

Wednesday, 16 March
09:00 - 13:00
Room 1122, Brussels Expo


Event overview

UpWind - funded under the EU's Sixth Framework Program (FP6) - looks towards the wind power of tomorrow. Consisting of 15 scientific and integrated work packages, it investigates the design of very large wind turbines (20 MW), for both onshore and offshore.

The areas covered in this event included:

  • results from research looking into upscaling to 20 MW
  • an overview of the aerodynamic and aeroelastic research fields
    the latest developments in lidars
  • an overview of the material research relevant to the design of wind turbine blades
  • the latest findings of the overall project
  • an overview of EU Commission initiatives and reflections on the future development of EU wind energy research and development programs
