WindEnergy@OST

Wind energy is the fastest growing renewable energy source in the world and has correspondingly reached a high level of significance in the energy branch. We are the first University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland with a research programme specifically for wind energy -  and we are engaged in exciting and demanding topics relevant to a digital, renewable future.

The Swiss Wind Energy R&D Network

We have founded The Swiss Wind Energy R&D Network. This network provides a platform to initiate and coordinate new collaborative wind energy projects in the areas of R&D, learning and teaching, ultimately aiming to foster excellence in Swiss wind energy R&D and to promote the export of Swiss know-how in products and services to the international wind energy market.
