High performance computing for wind energy

Project description

More efficient supercomputing to revolutionise wind energy production

Large numbers of wind power generators are being deployed worldwide at land and sea to meet the demand for clean alternatives to fossil fuels. Each stage of the wind farm life cycle, from site assessment and development to construction and operation, produces massive amounts of data that are processed by powerful computer systems. The EU-funded HPCWE project addresses crucial computational challenges faced by wind energy industries in Europe and Brazil. These include the efficient use of computational resources in wind turbine simulations, accurate integration of meso- and micro-scale simulations, and optimisation. The project aims to deliver a step change in the use of high-performance computing regarding wind flow simulations, reshaping almost every stage of wind energy exploration.
