Sea – Wind – Power: Research at the first German offshore by Michael Durstewitz, Bernhard Lange, Alistair A. Tarwid

By Michael Durstewitz, Bernhard Lange, Alistair A. Tarwid

This publication stories at the ambitions, equipment used and problems confronted by means of the RAVE examine tasks, and offers the consequences and their importance for the longer term use of offshore wind strength in a method that's comprehensible for everyone.

Readers are given a accomplished evaluate of the present prestige of offshore wind power learn and the result of the study activities.

Offshore wind strength will play an important position in our destiny strength offer, but this improvement has particularly in basic terms simply started. a wide group of specialists from the fields of analysis, undefined, public management and executive hence set themselves the target of investigating the present and primary concerns in terms of using offshore wind strength. They labored on interdisciplinary study tasks with the purpose of increasing our wisdom and discovering application-oriented recommendations. Their paintings has contributed to setting up offshore wind strength as a competent, sustainable and low-priced long-term resource of energy.

National and international networking was also part of the job, because offshore wind is not just a German domestic issue. The coordination project has also involved the planning and realisation of specialist workshops and major scientific conferences like the RAVE Conferences in 2012 and 2015 (Offshore Wind R&D Conference).
