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



WESC 2021 – Call for Abstracts now open!

The next Wind Energy Science Conference will take place as a web-conference on May 25 - 28, 2021. The biennial Wind Energy Science Conference is an international conference initiated by the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE). We are looking forward to welcoming scientists in the field of wind energy to present their latest findings and meet across traditional scientific borders. The conference covers all scientific topics in wind energy. Find more information about our program, the topics and deadlines on the conference website.

New ForWind member

At the last meeting of the ForWind board, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johanna Myrzik from the University of Bremen was welcomed as a new member of ForWind. In 2018, Myrzik took over the chair of automation technology (in energy supply) and the management of the Institute for Automation Technology at the University of Bremen, Department 1 Physics/Electrical Engineering, as a university professor. The institute develops new, intelligent technologies, methods, algorithms, and services that enable intelligent, adaptive, and reliable interaction between generation, storage, grid management, and demand across all voltage levels. Interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary research in energy networks is the hallmark of the Automation Technology Professorship, with a focus on automation of future energy networks. With her research, Myrzik complements the broad spectrum of engineering and physical research in wind energy within ForWind.


New ForWind member

At the last meeting of the ForWind executive board, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Haist from the Leibniz University Hannover was welcomed as a new member of ForWind. Haist succeeded Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ludger Lohaus at the Institute for Concrete Construction in 2019. The research of Prof. Haist is focused on novel digital concrete production and quality assurance techniques, the development of novel multifunctional materials as well as investigation and modelling of the mechanical properties such as fatigue and creep. His research complements the broad spectrum of engineering and physical research in the field of wind energy within ForWind.


With Digital Twin for optimised wind turbines

Using a digital twin to save material, support maintenance, reduce costs and increase wind yield: At the University of Bremen, the ForWind members BIK (Bremen Institute for Integrated Product Development) and IALB (Institute for Electrical Drives, Power Electronics and Components) have started their research on this topic together with eight partners. The aim: the ecologically and economically optimised operation of wind turbines.
