Strategic Research Agenda
The European Wind Energy Technology Platform (TPWind) has a vision in which wind energy covers 12-14% of the EU’s electricity consumption by 2020, with a total installed capacity of 180 GW.
By 2030, it sees this increasing to cover 25% of electricity consumption, with 300 GW of installed capacity. Fulfilling this vision will be a major industrial and technological challenge.
To begin the process, the members of TPWind have drawn up a common roadmap of the sector’s research priorities: the Strategic Research Agenda.
