Public funding to keep Denmark ahead in wind turbine blade research  

2010.03.05
The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation is providing DKK 70m in public funding for two new research centres
Danish wind turbine blades are the world's best-designed blades, and need to stay that way. That is the view of the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation, which is providing DKK 70m (USD 12.8m) in public funding for two new research centres to help Denmark stay ahead in this area, writes metal-supply.dk
 
One of the two new research units, the Danish Center for Composite Structures and Materials for Wind Turbines, will be led by Bent F. Sørensen from the National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Risø DTU. The research here will concentrate on designing and making stronger and more efficient wind turbine blades.
 
The second research unit, the Center for Numerical Wind Turbine Aerodynamics and Atmospheric Turbulence, will be led by Jens Nørkær Sørensen from the Technical University of Denmark's Department of Mechanical Engineering. Here the focus will be on developing computer models of the kind of turbulence experienced by wind turbines of all sizes. Everything from large-scale atmospheric turbulence to tiny fluctuations around the wind turbine blade surface will be studied in detail.
 
The public finance given to the two centres is part of the state agency's programme to support research that can help free Denmark from dependence on coal, oil and natural gas.
