Modelling on-shore wind turbine locations

Modelling on-shore wind turbine locations

SERG PhD student Mikey Harper is working on a number of methods to assess the potential for wind turbine development in the UK. As part of this he has produced a map of on-shore wind turbine planning applications to date and has also developed a model for predicting...
Offshore Wind Energy

Offshore Wind Energy

Planning for an offshore wind farm (OWF) is a multi-discipline planning scheme. The main aims of this research are to (a) identify suitable locations in Egypt that have potential for offshore wind power generation and how can these be exploited and (b) design appropriate wind turbine arrays providing clear understanding of the resources, engineering needs, deployment and decommissioning.

UK Micro Wind Trial

UK Micro Wind Trial

The UK has the best wind resource in Europe and this is now starting to be harnessed through both on-shore and off-shore multi-MW scale wind farms. Micro wind power technology, which is essentially the installation of small scale, 1-10 kW wind turbines on buildings or...
Micro Wind Modelling Tool

Micro Wind Modelling Tool

Within the framework of a research project funded by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) a micro wind modelling tool has been developed by SERG prompted by the imminent arrival of the technology. The tool allows the user to define a particular micro wind...
