Wind Energy Science Conference 2021 (WESC 2021)

The biennial Wind Energy Science Conference (WESC) is an international conference initiated by the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE). The 3rd edition of the conference will take place from 25 – 28 May 2021 at Leibniz University Hannover.

The main goal of the WESC is that scientists and researchers in the field of wind energy present their latest findings, and meet across traditional scientific borders. The conference covers all scientific topics in wind energy. Acceptance for oral presentations will be based on a peer-reviewed 1-page abstract. The conference is organized in close collaboration with the open-access journal Wind Energy Scienceand presenters will be invited to submit their work to this journal.

The conference is organised by ForWind, the joint Center for Wind Energy Research of the Leibniz University Hannover, the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg and the University of Bremen. ForWind forms a unique research network, and covers a broad spectrum of scientific topics, connecting 31 institutes and working groups. Research focuses on engineering sciences, physics and meteorology, computational science and economics.
