We have bought a 6 kW wind turbine in Winterthur, which we will use for teaching and research purposes. You can find further information here!



Via The Swiss Wind Energy R&D Network we have started two new projects: "Concept for The Swiss Wind Energy Machine Learning Collaboration Platform" and "The Swiss Wind Atlas Platform".



We hosted the event "The Second Swiss Wind Energy R&D Forum ONLINE" - read the report here.



Sarah Barber gave a talk today at the Data Science in Climate and Climate Impact Research Workshop (ETH Zurich) about "The role of machine learning in sitespecific wind turbine power curve prediction". Download the presentation here.




We are starting an Innosuisse Innovation Project with the company Skypull. More here.



Article in the EUT newsletter about the Aerosense project.



We are looking for a new member for our team: "Project Manager Wind Energy 80-100%"



We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded funding from the prestigious Swiss BRIDGE Discovery programme for the project "Aerosense: A novel MEMS-based surface pressure and acoustic smart measurement system for wind turbines". Seven people from HSR IET and ETH Zurich will be working on this exciting project lead by Sarah Barber from April 2020 until March 2022. Read more here.



Sarah Barber talks about the wind energy research programme at HSR the the TV programme "Schweiz aktuell" on 09.10.2019. View the interview here (starts around 13:00, breaks off due to a technical problem but starts again a few minutes later).



We have just founded "The Swiss Wind Energy R&D Network"! Sign up to become a member here (free until 31.12.2020).



We have started a new project "Comparison metrics simulation challenge" in collaboration with IEA Wind Task 31! More here.



We have started a collaboration with the Swiss start-up Skypull! Click here for more information!


Sarah Barber talks about her activites as a mentor in the GWEC programme "Women In Wind" here.



In June we organised a very successful Mini-Symposium at the Wind Energy Science Conference 2019 in Cork, Ireland - as well as holding three exciting presentations. You can find the presentations here.



You can see our new online lecture "An Introduction to Wind Energy Technology" here.



The event "The First Swiss Wind Energy R&D Forum" on May 15th 2019 was a great success! Read the press release here.
