Center for Wind Energy Research of the Universities of Oldenburg, Hannover and Bremen



Continuing Studies Programme: Apply now

Prospective students can apply for the Continuing Studies Programme Wind Energy Technology and Management (“Windstudium”) of the Center for Wind Energy Research (ForWind) at the University of Oldenburg until 4 September. The part-time course provides interdisciplinary knowledge on technology, economics, law and project planning in the wind energy sector at master degree level.


New European Wind Atlas published

Scientists from all over Europe have completed the New European Wind Atlas in the NEWA research project. Together with their European project partners, ForWind scientists have worked on developing and validating new methods for the assessment of wind conditions with the aim of supporting the identification of optimal sites for new wind farm projects. The completed wind atlas was presented to the German national wind industry in the scope of the final NEWA stakeholder event in Hanover on July 2, 2019.


Wind Physics Symposium

How can the planning, operation and monitoring of wind farms be further optimized? The "Wind Physics Symposium 2019" on 5 July at the WindLab in Oldenburg dealt with these questions and the associated physical processes. ForWind presented current research results in the fields of "Wind resource and wind farm effects", "Control of wind turbines and wind parks" and "Experimental and numerical research on wind turbines".


Successful Windstudium Alumni seminar

More than 80 graduates, students, lecturers and guests came together in the WindLab at ForWind for this year's alumni seminar of the Continuing Studies Programme Wind Energy Technology and Management (“Windstudium”). After a guided tour through the large wind tunnel, lectures by Henk Lagerweij (Lagerwey) and Dr. Sascha Schröder (EWE) offered numerous ideas for intensive discussions on the future of wind energy technology and the market for renewable energies. Afterwards interested participants had the opportunity to inform themselves about the wind studies programme and to talk to lecturers, alumni and students.
