Since 2014, EERA JP Wind has been organising yearly events in Amsterdam. The collaboration between EERA JP Wind and SETWind project started in 2019 with a 2-day physical event where researchers and industry collaborators came from all Europe. In 2020 the annual event was a fully digital conference organized by EERA JP Wind & SETWind, in collaboration with ETIPWind. It was five days of knowledge sharing, inspiring discussions, networking and collaboration opportunities with 482 members of the Wind community.

The EERA JP Wind & SETWind Annual Event aims for knowledge exchange, network opportunities and inspiration for new research topics. It is intended to focus on R&I priorities and technology development visions.

The 2021 edition of the EERA JP Wind & SETWind Annual Event was organized as a hybrid event, in Amsterdam and online, from September 20th to the 24th. A dedicated online platform was developed to provide the live stream of the event and participants could either join the event physically in Amsterdam or join the event virtually.

It consisted of 4 days of Conference, opening with a keynote speech from Mr Diederik Samsom, Head of Cabinet of Executive Vice-President, on the European Green Deal, focusing on the implications for the wind sector.

The event had the special attendance of Adel El Gammal, EERA Secretary General, with a keynote speech on Wind Energy and the promises within the global Clean Energy Transition, and Stephan Barth, IEA Wind TCP Chair, with a keynote speech on IEA Wind and the global collaboration in wind energy technology.

The presentations were organized in 7 sessions for a total of 14h of live stream chaired by EERA JP Wind MB members and focused on the following topics:

  • Lighthouse Initiatives – chair John Olav Tande
  • Digitalization and asset management – chairs Paul McKeever & Peter Eecen
  • Floating wind – recent developments and urgent research priorities – chair John Olav Tande
  • System integration – chairs Nicolaos Cutululis & Paul McKeever
  • Towards multi-scale wind flow modelling and measurements – chair Jake Badger
  • Value generation of wind energy in the future (social and economic considerations) – chairs Lena Kitzing & Iratxe Gonzalez-Aparicio
  • Sustainability and circular economy: material availability and usage – chairs Antonio Ugarte Olarreaga & Arno van Wingerde

Adjacent to the conference two additional workshops were organised:

  • EERA JP Wind WORKSHOP on Ongoing research in offshore wind structures on September 16 & 17, organized by EERA JP Wind Sub Programme on Structures, materials and components (SP7), with the support of the Sub Programme on Research Infrastructure, testing and standards (SP2), and the Sub Programme on Offshore Balance of Plant (SP6). 
  • Workshop on low specific power and low wind turbine, on September 23 & 24, organized by EERA Sub Programme 4 on Loads, Control and Aerodynamics with IEA Wind Task 37.

Due to Corona restrictions that are still in place, the meeting room at Aristo currently has a maximum capacity of 50 participants in the large meeting room. The reason is that the 1.5 meter restrictions still applies. 

This means that you need to register well in advance and indicate whether you travel to Amsterdam. We aim to provide all members to have at least one representative in Amsterdam. Could you be so kind to coordinate internally that the representation from your institute is limited? 

Since 2014, EERA JP Wind has been organising yearly events in Amsterdam. The collaboration between EERA JP Wind and SETWind project started in 2019 with a 2-day physical event where 112 researchers and industry collaborators came from all Europe. In 2020 the annual event was a fully digital conference organized by EERA JP Wind & SETWind, in collaboration with ETIPWind. It was five days of knowledge sharing, inspiring discussions, networking and collaboration opportunities within 482 members of the Wind community.

We are glad to announce here that the EERA JP Wind & SETWind Annual Event 2021 will be from the 20th to the 24th of September 2021. The restrictions for traveling and managing physical events are still uncertain, but the intention is to organize a hybrid event where participants can either join the event physically in Amsterdam or join the event virtually.

The EERA JP Wind & SETWind Annual Event aims for knowledge exchange, network opportunities and inspiration for new research topics. It is intended to focus on R&I priorities and technology development visions.

EERA JP Wind calls for abstracts with “Research priorities” and “Technology development vision”. Oral presentations by the contributors will be selected. Optionally, papers may be written that are published in conference proceedings that become available online.

The important topics in the Annual event are:

  • Digitalisation and asset management for wind energy
  • Floating wind; Recent developments, knowledge gaps and urgent research priorities
  • Wind energy system integration, how are we going to use the energy of the large-scale offshore wind power in our energy system.
  • Towards multi-scale wind flow modelling and measurements
  • Social considerations while implementing onshore wind
  • Sustainability and circular economy; material availability and usage

The annual event will have a strong focus on the development of the Lighthouse Initiatives. The Lighthouse initiatives that are pursued by EERA JP Wind are:

  • Floating offshore wind technology to make floating offshore wind cost competitive and
  • Integration of large-scale offshore wind energy to enable the future reliable operation and zero emission of the power system.

More details will be provided soon.

For more information, please email to f.riccionicapelli@eera-set.

The call for contributions is officially open. Abstracts can be directly submitted to the EERA JP Wind Operations & Communications Manager, Flaminia Riccioni Capelli, f.riccionicapelli@eera-set.eu, by August 8.
