Ocean wind is one of the fastest growing renewable energy sources in Europe. Accurate knowledge of the wind field and surrounding wind farms in addition to atmospheric static stability is important for wind farms to operate effectively.
NORCE has extensive experience in planning and executing wind measurement campaigns, both onshore and offshore. Our researchers have a high level of expertise with regards to post-processing, quality assurance and analysis of the wind measurement data.
NORCE has led an FME center for offshore wind, NORCOWE (2009-2017), and NORCOWE continues as a research network.
We arrange regular meeting places for industry and academia through the Science Meets Industry conferences. We are also a member of EERA JP Wind.
