The “Wind Energy Technology Platform Secretariat” (WindSec) was an EU funded project under FP6. The project was aimed at optimising the activities of the European Wind Energy Technology Platform (TPWind), and developing its infrastructure. WindSec played a key role, along with the active participation of its members, towards the achievement of TPWind objectives.
Running time: 21 March 2007 - 20 March 2010
TPWind, which is still operational, was launched in 2006. It aims to comprehensively model the market development and technology research needs and resources of the wind energy sector, with a view to cost reduction through economies of scale and new technology. The platform gathers stakeholders from private industry, Member States, EU institutions, finance, research institutions, etc, for maximum representation, building intra-sector sensitivity for greater collaboration and the development of new synergies. EWEA coordinated this project.
