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...

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...

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...

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...

Europe’s offshore wind capacity is expected to reach 450 GW by 2050, meeting 30% of Europe’s electricity demand. With the increase of installed capacity, the costs invested in O&amp;M will also increase significantly considering O&amp;M cost is one of the biggest contributors to life cycle costs. The improvement of O&amp;M management for...
