Help design the future of wind energy
The wind turbines being erected today are the largest rotating machines ever built by mankind. Visionary concepts, consistent further development, and the systematic refining and honing of expertise have pushed back the boundaries of what seemed technically possible time and time again in recent years. The changeover in energy supply from centralized to decentralized generation is one of the Herculean feats of the 21st century with far-reaching consequences for the quality of life of both our and future generations.
Here at Fraunhofer IWES, we are passionately dedicated to increasing the performance of wind turbines and minimizing the risk of new developments by means of constant validation. Wind energy is already the most cost-effective method of energy production. Its further development presents a range of challenges, which inspire us to think outside of the box and demand high levels of pioneering spirit and far-sightedness. The combination of the most varied skills in the fields of science and engineering and their focus on a common goal made us an internationally well-respected research service provider that is on a par with leading industry player.
