New Roadmap on Smart Networks for Energy Transition Online

New Roadmap on Smart Networks for Energy Transition Online

The new ETIP SNET Research & Innovation (R&I) Roadmap 2017-2026 provides the system view to the entire energy transition by addressing a scope larger than smart electricity grids. It also encompasses interactions with the gas and heat networks and focuses on integration of all flexibility solutions into the power system, including energy storage technologies. You can access the entire roadmap...

IWES develops test field for offshore wind turbines

IWES develops test field for offshore wind turbines

In early 2017, Fraunhofer IWES is set to receive its own test field for offshore wind turbines. Construction work is already under way and the first measurements and tests will begin in spring. Comparison of field survey results with data obtained on the large-scale test rigs will significantly expand the opportunities for further optimisation of measuring and testing methods as...

DTU’s Invention Revolutionising Wind Measurement

DTU’s Invention Revolutionising Wind Measurement

DTU researchers have invented a wind scanner which measures the actual wind conditions around wind turbines in three dimensions. Having three laser beams and a controllable system of prisms the 3D wind scanner detects a three-dimensional image of the wind field. The patented technology has now been put to work in several different types of wind scanner. The 3D measuring...
