The International Energy Agency Wind Technology Collaboration Programme (IEA Wind TCP) has announced the dates of the next two Topical Expert Meetings.

The Wind TCP supports the work of independent, international groups of experts that enable governments and industries from around the world to co-operate on wind energy research, development, and deployment (RD&D). It provides high quality information and analysis to member governments and commercial sector leaders by addressing technology development, deployment and its benefits, markets, and policy options.

The Topical Expert Meetings (TEM) of the Wind TCP aim to generate conversation about new technical and scientific developments and information needs. They are also an important catalyst for starting new research tasks within IEA Wind.

1. The first meeting will take place in Porto, Portugal on 1-3 June, and discuss the challenges and opportunities linked to floating supports, which represent the only feasible technical approach to harnessing offshore wind energy in high depths. More info.
2. The second meeting will take place Zurich, Switzerland on 30 November – 1 December, and discuss cohabitation issues with civil and military aviation systems. More info.
