Wind CoE - "Nordic Wind Energy Center"


Period: 01.12.2015 - 01.06.2018

Innehåll: To facilitate the development of wind power in the Nordic countries, comprehensive cross-border collaboration between researchers and industry experts is needed.. Processes of planning, development and operation of costeffective wind energy in cold climates are challenging and the need for cooperation between regional institutions / industriesare needed to cover the various areas ranging from technical, environmental, economic and social aspects. To accomplish improved and coordinated activities, the ability to learn from each other by sharing existing knowledge and use of existing infrastructure in the regions, a center of excellence for wind energy is required.To enable sustainable development of the energy sector and a better understanding of wind energy in cold climates, knowledge of the regionalgeographical diversity and the complementary competencies are a crucial. In order to enable and ensure the development of sustainable and cost-effective wind energy in cold climates we also need some research issues resolved. The aim of the project is to combine the forces of the national research units in order to increase the share of wind power onto the grid. Work will be performed in the three different regions (Ostrobothnia - Finland, Nordland - Norway, Västerbotten - Sweden) and their colleges in the wind energy sector. The production chain for wind, social acceptance and purpose of various techniques must be simulated for a better understanding of the effects on operation & maintenance. The goal of the project is to create tools that are beneficial for the sustainable development of wind power.Research collaboration combines the strongest research groups in the energy and simulation technology in the regions and together creates methods to research the future production of energy from renewable sources. With the developed competence center, it is possible to deal with wind energy issues in cold climates from a multidisciplinary perspective and work on these issues will facilitate the sustainable development of wind power in the Nordic countries.
