DUWIND PhD event “The future of wind energy, its challenges and our solutions”

23 September 2021 09:30 till 17:00 - By: DUWIND

In 2050, our energy system must be 100% CO2 - free, 100% reliable and affordable. Wind energy can deliver a substantive share of the future electricity demand and is therewith part of the solution.

The TU Delft Wind Energy Institute invites PhD students of TU Delft to discuss the future of wind energy, its challenges and our solutions. The PhD event will combine presentations, (round table) discussions with industry partners and TU Delft researchers, poster presentations and an award for the best poster.

Date: Thursday, 23 September 2021, 09:30-17:00h

Location: Art Centre Delft, Rotterdamseweg 205, 2629 HD Delft (if regulations allow meetings). If the number of participants is limited, PhD candidates are prioritized.
