When: Wednesday 18 November, 15:30 – 17:30
Where: Espace 2000 D

WINDTRUST is a three-year project that aims to reduce the cost of wind energy generation by further enhancing the design of three components with high improvement potential: the rotor blades, the power electronics and the wind turbine controller. Increasing the performance and durability of these components will contribute to reducing the overall cost of wind energy, thus improving the business case for wind energy projects.

These innovative components will be tested on an onshore 2MW prototype turbine, and the results will be extrapolated for implementation on larger turbines and offshore locations.

As the project enters its third and final year, this event will be an opportunity for participants to learn about the innovative designs and project achievements to date.

WINDTRUST has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme and brings together key European industrial players (GAMESA, LM Wind Power, SEMIKRON) and research centres (CENER, CRES, Technical University of Denmark, University of Strathclyde and University of Southampton).

This event is open to all registered EWEA 2015 participants.
