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



ForWind at the HUSUM Wind

Together with ForWind organizes the workshop "Qualified for Wind Energy - Requirements and Offers". The workshop will be offered at the Windcareer, the leading job fair for the wind industry, on Friday, 13 September 2019, at the HUSUM Wind. Companies such as ENERCON, Deutsche Windtechnik and GPJoule will provide insights into their working environment and study and education courses in wind energy will be presented.


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".
