Collaborative wind turbines for the most sustainable future | TU Delft

Collaborative wind turbines for the most sustainable future | TU Delft

Extracting as much energy as cost-effectively as possible from each individual wind turbine epitomised the short-term approach of the past. But what we need for a climate-neutral and energy-independent Europe is a shift towards sustainable wind energy in the long term, taking into account all costs and aspects – including societal and environmental ones. This is what the wind farm control room of the future is all about.
