Wind Energy European Industrial Initiative

Strategic objective: To improve the competitiveness of wind energy technologies, to enable the exploitation of the offshore resources and deep waters potential, and to facilitate grid integration of wind power.

Technology objectives:

  • New turbines and components to lower investment, operation and maintenance costs
  • Offshore technology with a focus on structures for large-scale turbines and deep waters (> 30 m)
  • Grid integration techniques for large-scale penetration of variable electricity supply
  • Resource assessment and spatial planning to support wind energy deployment
