WHAT WAS THE WORKSHOP ABOUT?

Wind as a clean and renewable alternative to fossil fuels has become an increasingly important contributor to the global energy portfolio. At almost every stage in wind energy exploitation ranging from wind turbine design, wind resource assessment to wind farm layout and operations, the application of HPC is a must.

In this workshop on September 14th & 15th, researchers and experts from leading European and Brazilian research institutions and companies in the domains of wind energy as well as HPC will explore the latest developments in:

  • HPC Technology
  • Wind Energy & Models
  • HPC for Wind Energy
 

TOPICS & TIMING

Besides presentations and Q&A with the HPCWE project partners, the workshop included guest talks by:

The online workshop took place on two half days:
Day 1: September 14th, 1 p.m. CET to 5 p.m. CET
Day 2: 
September 15th, 1 p.m. CET to 5 p.m. CET
