Optimising the performance, operation and design of onshore, offshore and airborne wind energy systems
CONTRIBUITING TO THE ENERGY TRANSITION
Wind energy is one of the oldest energy sources used by humans. It is zero-emission, inexhaustible, efficient, and strongly contributes to reducing the use of fossil fuels.
Wind energy is available almost everywhere, onshore, offshore, and at different altitudes. Wind plants produce more than one-third of the total electricity generated from renewable sources in the EU.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme under Grant Agreement No. 101084216
MERIDIONAL IN A NUTSHELL
MERIDIONAL has the aim to produce a knowledge and data hub and a toolchain that will be accessible to a range of users from industrial to academic sectors to improve wind farm design, performance assessment, and loading. The research will draw on a comprehensive set of data including simulations and field campaigns and be demonstrated through selected use cases, onshore, offshore, and airborne.
