    ... in this integrated project:* metrology* transmission and conversion* smart rotor blades and rotor control* aerodynamics and aeroelastics* foundations and support structures* control systems* remote sensingProject partners:The project includes 40 partners from the manufacturing industries, service providers, universities, R&D establishments and professional organisations who are working on 15 integration and research work packages.The 40 partners involved in the project are the following:* Technical University of Denmark (Risø National Laboratory), Denmark, Project Coordinator* Technical University of Denmark (Risø National Laboratory), Denmark* Aalborg University, Denmark* Energy research Centre of the Netherlands, The Netherlands* Stichting Kenniscentrum Windturbine Materialen en Constructies, The Netherlands* Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands* Centre for Renewable Energy Sources, Greece* National Technical University of Athens, Greece* University of Patras, Greece* Institut für Solare Energieversorgungstechnik Verein an der Universität Kassel, Germany* Universität Stuttgart, Germany* Elsam Engineering A/S, Denmark* GE Wind Energy GmbH, Germany* Gamesa Innovation and Technology, Spain* Fiberblade Eólica S.A., Spain* Garrad Hassan and Partners Ltd., United Kingdom* Werkzeugmaschinenlabor, Aachen University, Germany* LM Glasfiber A.S., Denmark* Germanischer Lloyd WindEnergie GmbH, Germany* Ramboll Danmark A.S., Denmark* Fundación Robotiker, Spain* VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Finland* SAMTECH S.A., Belgium* Shell Windenergy BV, The Netherlands* Repower Systems AG, Germany* Det Norske Veritas, Danmark A/S, Denmark* Lohmann und Stolterfoht GmbH, Germany* University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom (link to )* Instytut Podstawowych Problemow Techniki PAN, Poland* Institute of Thermomechanics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Czech Republic* Lulea University of Technology, Sweden* Council for the Central Laboratory of the Research Councils, United Kingdom* Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium* QinetiQ Ltd., United Kingdom* Vestas Asia Pacific A/S, Denmark* Smart Fibres Ltd., United Kingdom* University of Salford, United Kingdom* European Wind Energy Association, Belgium* Ecotècnia S.C.C.L., Spain* Fundación CENER - CIEMAT, Spain- www.upwind.euOrecca - ORECCA (Offshore Renewable Energy Conversion platforms - Coordination Action) aims to create a framework for knowledge sharing, and developing a research roadmap for activities in the context of offshore renewable energy. The roadmap will define strategic investment opportunities, R&D priorities, and the regulatory and socio-economic aspects that need to be addressed to achieve a vision and strategy for a European policy towards the development of the offshore renewable energy sector.ORECCA will stimulate collaboration in research acitivites leading towards innovative, cost efficient and environmentally benign offshore renewable energy conversion platforms for wind, wave, and other energy resources. The project runs from March 2010 to August 2011.Twenties -Twenties is a EUR 30 million EU-funded grids project that will look into how to operate grid systems with large amounts of wind and other renewables has now been launched. The project, which will run for three years and will be funded by the 7th Framework Programme, will develop demonstration projects to help overcome obstacles to a larger integration of wind power. Twenties involves TSOs, EWEA and over 20 partners, with the Spanish system operator Red Electrica in the lead.WindSec -The “Wind Energy Technology Platform Secretariat” (WindSec) was an EU funded project under FP6. The project was aimed at optimising the activities of the European Wind Energy Technology Platform (TPWind), and developing its infrastructure. WindSec played a key role, along with the active participation of its members, towards the achievement of TPWind objectives.TPWind, which is still operational, was launched in 2006. It aims to comprehensively model the market development and technology research needs and resources of the wind energy sector, with a view to cost reduction through economies of scale and new technology. The platform gathers stakeholders from private industry, Member States, EU institutions, finance, research institutions, etc, for maximum representation, building intra-sector sensitivity for greater collaboration and the development of new synergies. EWEA coordinated this project.For more information on this article or if you would like to know more about what www.windfair.net can offer, please do not hesitate to contact Trevor Sievert at ts@windfair.netwww.windfair.net is the largest international B2B Internet platform – ultimately designed for connecting wind energy enthusiasts and companies across the globe!...
