Capacity building in renewables

Building capacity in efficient utilisation of wind energy




Wind energy professionals

We offer a broad range of software for optimising the utilisation of wind energy. The software is continuously being developed with new research input and acts as a platform for research-based innovation and communication. Examples of software are WAsP, WAsP Engineering, HAWC2, BECAS and HAWCStab2.

For building capacity in efficient utilisation of wind energy we run training courses both in the use of software products developed at DTU (such as WAsP, WAsP Engineering, HAWC2, HAWCStab2, and EllipSys) and in the planning and development of wind farms and offshore wind energy.

The objective was to promote wind energy development and facilitate investments on wind energy projects in the Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia through feasibility assessment and capacity building.

The aim of the project is to promote wind energy development and facilitate investments on wind energy projects in these countries through feasibility assessment and capacity building. The capacity building activities comprise trainings and workshops to be embedded during the feasibility assessment study.

Continuing education of professionals
These courses are primarily aimed at users of the WAsP software package who work for companies, many of them wind farm developers.

E-learning courses
DTU Wind Energy also offers an online WAsP and HAWC courses and a Coursera MOOC course on general wind energy.

Future digital e-learning masters in wind energy (60 ECTS over 2 years)
This masters-level education is a new initiative and courses offered for the first time in autumn 2017 and is designed for distance learning by people in industry.

DTU contributed to Activity 2 - Probabilistic analysis and planning for the high and medium voltage power distribution system in South Africa. DTU contributed also to Activity 1 - Preparation of inception/ methodology report and Activity 5 - Develop a final report.

DTU performed Task 2: Introduction and fundamental theory in using probabilistic analysis using stochastic type load and generation input data for network planning tasks in the South African sub-transmission power distribution network (Workshop 1A). Capacity building was organized via the Workshop 1 A at ESKOM’s premises in Johannesburg during one week in May 2019.
