The demand for hydrogen is expected to increase significantly in the coming years due to its critical role in decarbonizing industrial processes. Offshore wind presents a viable energy source for powering electrolyzers, though it leads to intermittent production. While underground salt caverns are acknowledged as a promising solution for large...

To stay on track for the 1.5°C pathway of the Paris Agreement, an accelerated energy transition is essential. Efficient offshore energy infrastructure planning, incorporating novel methods, is crucial and requires transparent, industry-wide discussion. However, two main challenges emerge: (i) the often-overlooked integration of energy islands in...

In an era where global energy consumption has been rising steadily, the demand and supply of renewable energy sources have become increasingly important. Offshore wind is a promising renewable energy source, which has been actively developed in the last decades in the form of bottom-founded offshore wind, bound to shallow water. Floating...

Offshore Floating Wind Energy (OFWE) presents a promising yet underdeveloped sector due to its higher costs and engineering complexities compared to fixed-bottom systems. Unlike fixed-bottom systems, OFWE isn't restricted by water depth, offering over four times more ocean area for deployment. This flexibility allows for positioning wind farms...

The potential of utility-scale airborne wind energy (AWE) systems to contribute significantly to the energy transition hinges on their large-scale deployment, which depends on the cost-competitiveness and complementarity with conventional wind turbines. Central to the assessment of these metrics is understanding long-term energy production,...

This study presents an innovative algorithm designed to optimise the layout of floating offshore wind farms (FOWFs), addressing inter-array cable length and the number of anchor structures required. This research is particularly noteworthy as no prior work has been conducted on wind farm layout optimisation for FOWFs. The Local-Search-Inspired...

Airborne wind energy (AWE) is an emerging renewable energy technology that uses kites to harvest winds at higher altitudes than wind turbines. Understanding how residents experience a local AWE system (AWES) is important as the technology approaches commercialization. Such knowledge can help adjust the design and deployment of an AWES to fit...

For scenarios of high penetration of renewable energy, it becomes increasingly relevant to improve the dispatchability of supply for wind and solar power plants. Baseload power plants, required to produce a minimum power production at all times, are discussed in this context. The baseload constraint can be satisfied with renewable sources when...

Federated learning has recently emerged as a privacy-preserving distributed machine learning approach. Federated learning enables collaborative training of multiple clients and entire fleets without sharing the involved training datasets. By preserving data privacy, federated learning has the potential to overcome the lack of data sharing in...

Offshore wind energy is expected to be the most significant source of future electricity supply in Europe. Offshore wind farms are located far from the shores, requiring a fleet of various types of vessels to access sites when maintaining offshore wind turbines. The employment of the vessels is costly, accounting for the majority of the total...

Control co-design is a promising approach for wind turbine design due to the importance of the controller in power production, stability, load alleviation, and the resulting coupled effects on the sizing of the turbine components. However, the high computational effort required to solve optimization problems with added control design variables...

Measure Correlate Predict (MCP) is a method used to characterize the future wind resource at potential new wind farm locations. It finds a relationship between the wind data obtained at the target site and a nearby reference site over a short time period. This relationship is applied to long-term historical data from the reference site in order...

The Dutch energy strategy expects renewable energy sources like wind and solar to provide around 70% of the yearly electricity by 2030. In order to achieve these targets, models that efficiently and accurately capture the flow around wind turbines would be immensely helpful for both planning and operation of wind farms.<br/><br/>For wind turbine...

The Airborne Wind Energy industry is evolving rapidly, aiming to establish its position among the major players in the conventional renewable energy sector. Since this industry is relatively young, it faces various challenges with scaling and integration into society. One aspect that can be improved is the design process of soft-wing kites. The...

Wind turbines experience a wide variety of load cases, both when in operation and when parked. While a turbine in operating conditions often experiences larger loads than in parked conditions, uniquely large inflow angles may occur in parked conditions resulting in less well-understood aeroelastic conditions. Vibrations under these conditions...

The mitigation of climate change and the transition to a more sustainable and circular use of resources are two of the largest challenges of our time. To this end, the European Commission proposed the Net Zero Industry Act (NZIA) and Critical Raw Materials Act (CRMA) in March 2023 as further pillars to its Green Deal. While the NZIA focuses on...

Wind turbine noise is one of the grand challenges in the public acceptance of onshore wind farm projects. The field of psychoacoustics identifies the auralisation of wind turbine noise as a link between technical design and annoyance estimation. There is currently limited work on the auralisation of wind turbine noise, and none targets an...
