The European Union wants offshore wind to become a pillar of its future energy system. Getting there is within our reach, but research challenges must be solved. We propose (we being the EU SETWind project, in close collaboration with EERA JP Wind and ETIPWind) two new large-scale initiatives to allow the EU
Watch the new SETWind video to better understand the fundamental contribution of the SETPlan Implementation Working Group for Offshore Wind to the European Clean Energy Transition. Offshore wind power is a key technology for Europe’s green transition. The European Commission expects offshore wind power to grow from [GW today] to 300GW in EU waters by
EERA JP Wind & SETWind Communities on ZENODO platform To better disseminate the outcomes of the activities managed by EERA JP Wind and SETWind EU project, they both recently decided to adopt Zenodo platform. Zenodo is a general-purpose open-access repository developed under the European OpenAIRE program and operated by CERN. It allows researchers to deposit research papers,
“From Grand Challenges to Lighthouse initiatives” EERA JP Wind & SETWind webinar on May 5 & 6. The Wind scientific community is again called upon to express its opinion, this time about the scientific challenges to be addressed in the lighthouse initiatives. This happens in the 2 days webinar organized by EERA JP Wind & SETWind on May 5th & 6th, 2021.
EERA JP Wind SP4 announces the workshop Future of Aerodynamics, Loads and Control 2030 2050 - FALCON 30/50 to be held the 25th February 2021. In this workshop, the most recent advances and the technological challenges in the field of Wind Turbines Aerodynamics, Loads and Controls will be analyzed with the aim of meeting the 2030-2050 Green Deal objectives.
In an exclusive interview, John Olav Tande - respected scientist at SINTEF , SETWind Lighhouse Initiative ambassador and Coordinator of EERA JP Wind Sub-programme on Offshore Balance of Plant (SP6) - explores what’s in the pipeline for the offshore wind sector. Among the issues to address, John Olav discussed the potential in floating

"An ambitious Offshore Wind Implementation Plan for an ambitious Europe" The development in offshore wind energy over the past few years has been truly breath taking. In 2018, turbine manufactures broke through the 10MW barrier for turbine size; in 2019, Hornsea 1 became the first GW wind farm; and in 2020, the first concrete
