In the below presentation, we’ll explore the critical juncture at which the wind energy sector finds itself and the pivotal role that Research & Innovation (R&I) plays in its trajectory. Facing challenges in scaling up, expanding manufacturing capacity, and meeting sustainability expectations, wind energy looks to R&I as a key solution. Through strategic prioritisation and increased funding, R&I endeavours can propel the sector forward, aligning with Europe’s climate and energy targets. Join us as we delve into the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), outlining key priorities and strategies to drive a resilient, affordable, and sustainable energy transition across Europe.
