The scope of the activities of the Section Wind Energy is to facilitate the development of wind energy technology and the expansion of the use of wind power all over the world through research and education.
In its research activities there is a focus on large electricity generating wind turbines on the multi megawatt scale. Both technology development aspects as well as fundamental aspects of wind energy conversion are part of the research program. A small but challenging part of the research activities addresses the urban deployment of wind power.
Regarding education several dedicated courses on the BSc and the MSc level are developed for students of the faculty and of the TU Delft. Apart from offering an MSc focus on Wind Energy for TU Delft Aerospace students, the section participates in the new 3TU MSc curriculum Sustainable Energy Technology and in the European Master course in Renewable Energy offered by EUREC.
