The Future of Wind Farm Design


Learn about the Wind & Economy software for offshore Wind Farm Design

The EERA Joint Programme for Wind Energy is presenting the spin-off software Wind & Economy at the EWEA 2015 event in Paris. The software is the product of the EERA-DTOC project.

This Paris workshop sets out to present the audience with concrete, ready-to-apply results of the EERA-DTOC project and first results and goals of the EERA-IRPWind programme.

When: November 18, 2015

Where: EWEA Paris 2015

The DTOC (Design Tool for Offshore wind farm Cluster) project has resulted in a spin-off software called Wind & Economy that optimises wind farm design for cost of energy, taking into account the wind climate of clustering wind farms, wake information and grid design considerations. This session will show you how to use this tool for your wind farm planning.

The IRPWind (Integrated Research Programme Wind) aims to reduce the time to market of research and development efforts through efficient cooperation. The key topic is integration. In 3 sessions, we present and discuss open data sharing in wind energy, how forecasting will change the future energy market, and how the research community can help kick-start your R&D initiatives, both financially and content-wise.

EERA DTOC and IRPWIND are part of the research activity of the European Energy Research Alliance Joint Programme Wind (EERA JP Wind) that promotes cooperation in wind research between 41 European research institutes.

This event is open to all registered event participants. No additional registration required.
