Project Description

This project will enhance the coordination of all small wind energy research in Ireland through the establishment of a proposed national competence centre (building on the EI model of competence centres) for wind energy where TCD will coordinate all national research dealing with small / medium wind turbine technology across Irish academia. It also aims to integrate EU funded initiatives on small wind.
