Project description

English EN

Positioning wind turbines for improved energy production

To meet the growing need for environmentally friendly energy sources, nations and organisations around the world are searching for ways to produce as much energy as possible at lower costs. This makes wind energy popular but its performance hinges on location and positioning. The EU-funded zEPHYR project aims to create a platform that will allow for better consideration of where wind turbines should be deployed for maximum energy production. It plans to do that by implementing advanced meso/microscale atmospheric models and data on the impact of real terrain and local atmospheric models in the search for optimal wind turbine locations.
