Call for abstracts

Submission deadline: 6 September

It’s that time of the year again! We’re all making plans for next year, and there’s one thing that should definitely be on your agenda: WindEurope’s Annual Event 2025, which will take place in Copenhagen from 8-10 April. Eager to present your work, meet your peers and help advance the wind energy sector?

We are calling for abstracts on technologies, concepts, research, ideas, and solutions that will help boost Europe’s energy security and speed up the transition to a renewables-based, electrified energy system.

The deadline to submit an abstract is 6 September 2024.

What is the scope?

WindEurope Annual Event 2025 is your annual wind energy conference and exhibition, so we will of course cover all aspects of onshore and offshore wind technology, from designing turbines and planning wind farms to operations, all the way to decommissioning and recycling. We will also keep the focus on how wind can support and drive the electrification of the wider economy. Of particular interest will be contributions on how we can accelerate the scale-up, automate both manufacturing and operations and also how we can better understand fatigue and faults in larger turbines, so we can prevent them.

What kind of contributions are we looking for?

We are looking for concrete examples of alreadyimplemented operational solutions, experience, and feedback from the field, including real-world data, as well as innovative research, concepts and ideas that can bring the sector forward.

Submitted abstracts should be related to the technical themes of the conference – as listed below. Scientific contributions should focus on applied research with a higher TRL (5 or above). Commercial submissions will be rejected (1).

Additionally, WindEurope believes that women can break the glass-ceiling in the wind energy industry. We therefore would like to encourage as many women as possible to submit their work for presentation through our call for abstracts.

We’re keen to hear from a wide range of voices – if you are working on interesting wind-related projects and issues, in academia, the wind industry, or other sectors interacting with wind, this is your chance to share them with the wider wind community!
