Combined IRPWind and EERA DTOC workshop during EWEA conference in Paris 2015

Tuesday 30 Jun 15
The future of wind farm design.

The goal of the workshop is to present the audience with the concrete, ready-to-apply results of the EERA-DTOC project and first results and goals of the EERA-IRPWind programme. The DTOC (Design Tool for Offshore wind farm Cluster) project has resulted in a spin-off software called Wind & Economy that optimizes 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 it 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.

The workshop will be held during the EWEA conference in Paris, 17-20 November 2015. More information about the workshop will follow during August 2015.
