Wind Europe

Amsterdam, November 29, 2017 - As the wind industry continues its unprecedented growth, join over 8,000 participants this November for the WindEurope Conference & Exhibition in the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre. WIND EUROPE will be held at Amsterdam's RAI Centre.

This is certainly a jour-fixe of the wind industry. Please join a topical session on Onshore Wind Industry: Where do we go next?

Offshore wind turbines will soon be exceeding 10MW in order to lower LCOE. But how can onshore reach the same level facing the dual challenge of more restrictions (noise, transportation, etc.) and less wind resources being available? New turbine architectures, advanced materials and production processes at lowest possible costs are needed in order to keep up with the market demand. What technological innovations can support such market development? What improvements in turbine components can help to optimize the complete value chain?

Delegates will:

  • analyze the current trends in onshore technology from a key player in business intelligence
  • assess the potential of a lightweight superconducting drivetrain developed in a joint European project
  • realize how new materials allow to reduce wind turbine loads
  • reflect on the possible benefits of taller wind turbine towers.

At this session   Jesper Hansen (Envision Energy, Denmark) .is invited to present on “Towards the First Installation of a Direct Drive Superconducting Generator on a Commercial Wind Turbine” . Follow the embedded link to see Jesper's bio and details of his presentation. We will update the link once the foils are publicly available.
