ETIPWind workshop on wind Research and Innovation policy 2016

How to maintain Europe’s global leadership in wind energy

 

Following the publication of the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), two workshops were organised by the ETIPWind secretariat.

Workshop 1: “Wind energy in a digitised world”, Hamburg, 14:30-16:00, 27 September 2016.

This session looked at the digitisation of the wind energy sector and asked the following questions addressing a major topic for wind energy R&I, included in the second pillar (operation and maintenance) of R&I mentioned in the SRIA: What are the challenges and bottlenecks? Which success stories look promising? What can be learned from other, more advanced, industries? Where should R&I efforts focus and in which area should the collaboration be encouraged?
