The Spanish technology centre Cener gives an overview of the first results coming from the testing phase on the software, the blade configurations and the control strategies developed during the European Windtrust project
Advanced detection of wind anomalies could help prolong the lifespan of wind turbine components and reduce the cost of wind energy generation. In this context, European researchers have developed smart control software
The WindTrust project is designing the wind turbine of the future to minimise maintenance costs and improve performance.
Meet the experts behind the WindTrust project.
The WindTrust project has developed new blades, power electronics and control systems to improve the performance of wind turbines.
Offshore wind turbines play an increasingly important role in renewable power generation. More than 3,000 megawatts of new offshore wind power capacity was connected to the grid during 2015 in Europe, up 108% on 2014
The Windtrust project has presented its innovative wind energy solutions at the Onshore Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition, organised by Scottish Renewables in Glasgow, on 29 June 2016.
Wind power is a non-polluting source of electricity. However, noise is a source of complaint and has raised health concerns for people living near wind farms. Researchers are studying the best ways to identify, measure and reduce it
After presenting the project’s final results in Brussels on 14 June, the WINDTRUST partners will showcase the innovative solutions developed in the framework of the project at the Scottish Renewables Onshore Wind Conference and Exhibition to be held in Glasgow on 29 June 2016.
Technologies that increase the durability, performance and availability of both onshore and offshore wind turbines were presented during the 11th Edition of the EU Sustainable Energy Week, taking place between 13 and 27 June 2016 in Brussels.
On 25 May 2016, the Windtrust project has been featured on the “High-Tech” segment of the international channel Euronews.

Wind power production costs have fallen 66% in six years due to rising plant capacities and significant cuts in operation and maintenance costs, according to a report published by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).
A 100% renewable energy scenario is possible in Europe, but to achieve it we need to make offshore wind more competitive and start redesigning our energy systems, says world expert Brian Vad Mathiesen
Danish Researchers have developed an innovative coating system which significantly increases the performance of offshore wind turbine blades.
Andreas Makris is a research engineer working for CRES, Greece’s national Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving. The country is considered to be ideal for the exploitation and use of renewable sources of energy due to its climate and weather. Many analysts say that these sources could be an answer to the economic crisis.
Wind energy and other renewables can now supply electricity at highly cost effective levels — and it’s happened so rapidly that public perception is yet to catch up
The WINDTRUST project partners hosted a workshop this week, presenting their innovative turbine component designs to industry experts at EWEA 2015, a high profile wind energy conference in Paris.
Harnessing the power of wind has long been recognised as an important, alternative source of electricity generation. Now a new European project is aiming to improve the technology and make it even more competitive

A European research project aims to reduce the cost of wind energy generation by introducing technical improvements to turbines, which will have to be much quieter in the future than is the case today
Noise pollution is a big public concern associated with operating wind turbines. A group of European scientists claim to have found a solution to tackle this problem, assembling an innovative device on the blades.
Three innovative components can pave the way for cheaper wind energy generation
As energy security rises up the agenda across Europe this winter, a report by independent analysts Cambridge Econometrics shows additional wind power would make the UK’s energy supply more resilient by cutting costly imports of fossil fuels.
10-12/03/2015 - The world’s largest offshore wind energy conference and exhibition is a biennial event that unites the whole of the wind energy supply chain under one roof.
18/07/2014 - An analysis by the Danish Energy Authority has found that the cheapest way for Denmark to obtain new electricity capacity is through the installation of wind turbines.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under the grant agreement No 322449
