Offshore wind lighthouse initiative: an ocean of opportunities
The EU funded SETWind project has a vision of creating an ambitious pan-European effort in offshore wind energy research that will contribute to achieving the targets set in the Paris Agreement. Fostering international collaboration in offshore wind energy is crucial to reach the ambitious goals, but also makes economic sense.
This workshop is organized by the SETWind project together with ETIPwind and EERA JP Wind to support the development of offshore wind energy. The workshop is at the venue of the EERA DeepWind R&I conference and is open for all registered conference participants.
13:00 Welcome by the session chair including brief introduction to SETWind (Mattias Andersson, DTU)
13:10 Comparative overview of current wind power R&D agendas (ETIPwind, EERA JPwind and IEA) as a framework for the lighthouse discussion (Peter Eecen, TNO)
13:25 The offshore wind lighthouse initiative (John Tande, SINTEF)
13:40 Work session (in groups if possible) to
- expand list of possible lighthouse topics within offshore wind energy
- further developing and explaining the lighthouse initiatives
14:20 Summary of workshop discussion
14:30 End of session
EERA DeepWind 2020 Conference – 15 to 17 January, in Trondheim, Norway.
This is an international event aiming to present the best on-going research and innovation related to deep sea offshore wind farms, both bottom-fixed and floating. The conference is hosted by SINTEF and NTNU and organized in cooperation with the European Energy Research Alliance joint programme on wind energy (EERA JP Wind).
The conference has been developing every year since 2004, and is established as an important venue on deep sea offshore wind R&D. The programme includes a mix of plenary presentations with broad appeal and presentations in parallel sessions or by posters on specific science and technology themes.
Topics included are:
- New turbine and generator technology
- Grid connection and system integration
- Met-ocean conditions
- Operation & maintenance
- Installation and sub-structures
- Wind farm optimization
- Experimental testing and validation
- Wind farm control systems
The max number of attendances is 200, making it a compact event, and a nice opportunity for networking.
