Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO309: NeWindEERA - A new research programme for the European wind energy sector

Paul McKeever, Head of Electrical Research, ORE Catapult


The wind energy industry is facing some significant targets in the coming decades, particularly in 2035 and 2050 as we strive towards net zero. In order to support these challenging targets, the industry needs to develop a new research programme that will provide the focus and priorities in the right areas (and a programme that is backed by both industry and the research community). Welcome to the NeWindEERA project! NeWindEERA is funded by EERA JP Wind and concerns the development of a new programme for the European research community. The project focuses on the development of a Research Programme of work for wind energy research activities spanning from now towards 2050 goals. The program has identified research gaps and the key research themes for wind energy with a timeline for each theme, including key high-level milestones and relevant research topics. The project outputs are being adopted by the EERA JP Wind research community and used to guide the evolution of EERA JP Wind into a European Centre of Excellence for Wind Energy Amongst the content under consideration for the research programme are the Lighthouse Projects of Floating Wind Energy and Integration of Large-Scale Offshore Wind Energy. The programme also links to the 'Net Zero by 2050' scenario formulated by IEA and the REPowerEU plan defined by the European Commission that has identified the research needed to achieve the targets for wind energy. The new programme also considers the SET Plan ensuring alignment and providing clarity about the research needed to fulfil EU energy and technology objectives. The programme also takes guidance from the current EERA JP Wind R&I Strategy, the Grand Challenges in the Science of Wind Energy and the ETIP Wind SRIA and roadmap to ensure strong industry alignment.
