Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) and SINTEF Energy Research cooperate to develop Norwegian competence and know-how in wind power technology. The project is carried out with financial support from NFR, Statkraft, Norsk Hydro and Umoe Ryving with focus on the following topics:

a) wind conditions in complex terrain

b) aero and structural dynamics

c) wind power in weak electric grids

d) international co-operations

The project includes R&D at SINTEF Energy Research and IFE in co-operation with the industrial partners and two PhD studies being carried out at NTNU.

The project is carried out closely coordinated with “Strategic wind energy programme 2003-2007
