Grand challenges in the science of wind energy

Science Magazine  October 25, 2019 Wind energy is already playing a role as a mainstream source of electricity, driven by decades of scientific discovery and technology development. An international team of researchers (USA – NERL, University of Colorado, UMASS Amherst, NOAA, Johns Hopkins University, University of Wyoming, Sandia National Laboratory, industry, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Spain, Norway) reviews the challenges and opportunities for further expanding wind technology, with an emphasis on the need for interdisciplinary collaboration. They identified three grand challenges in wind energy research that require further progress from the scientific community: (i) improved understanding […]
