Recommendations for improving cross-disciplinary FAIR data sharing in wind energy
Modelling and estimation of unsteady aerodynamic flow at high Reynolds number
The Swiss Wind Energy R&D Network
In the year 2020 we founded the non-profit organization “The Swiss Wind Energy R&D Network”.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We work actively on improving diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), both in our own working environment and in the wind energy sector in general.
WeDoWind is a methodology for enabling and motivating people from science and industry as well as other stakeholders to work together, and to exchange and manage data and knowledge in a safe environment, in such a way that a mutually beneficial win-win situation is created. Find out more here.
The domain of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provides a great promise to revolutionize all aspects of human professional engagement. The wind energy industry can particularly benefit from IIoT solutions, especially for wind farms located at sea or other remote locations that require effective monitoring systems to…
A novel MEMS-based surface pressure and acoustic smart measurement system for wind turbines Background Wind energy is an important technology for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the EU Energy Strategy 2030. As the wind energy industry matures and wind turbines grow, there is an increasing need for…
Wind energy project planning and operation is particularly difficult in Switzerland due to its complex terrain and challenging weather conditions. This requires Swiss wind farm planners and operators to apply a range of different advanced modelling and analysis techniques to each site, making it difficult to transfer…
The goal of this SFOE-funded project is to provide wind modellers and wind energy planners with recommendations for methods to efficiently obtain highly resolved spatio-temporal wind fields in mountainous terrain and with this to estimate energy yields.
IEA Wind Task 43
Since 2023, Sarah Barber has been acting as Co-Operating Agent of IEA Wind Task 43 (Digitalisation). Part of the IEA Technology Collaboration Programme, IEA Wind Task 43 aims to unlock the full value of wind energy data.
Following the completion of the Aerosense project, we are transferring the technology to the ETH Zurich spin-off RTDT Laboratories AG.
