More than 50 participants from over 15 countries identified four key areas:
- Grid systems, infrastructure and integration
- Operation and maintenance
- Offshore balance of plant
The complex analysis built on three previous steps. 2,700 conference papers provided the basis. 230 people took part in an online survey conducted over the course of May 2016. Eventually, 25 experts scrutinised these results to facilitate a well-informed exchange at the workshop between academia, industry and the European Commission.
The next public workshop takes place on 27 September, where ETIPWind will present the agreed Strategic Research Agenda 2016 to the European institutions.
ETIPWind acts as the hub that brings the European wind energy community together because such a collaboration helps the industry reduce LCoE and Europe become world champion in renewables.
