The Science of Making Torque from Wind

AIRE’s partners CENER and DTU actively participated in the prestigious TORQUE 2024, an official event by the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE). This year, TORQUE was held in the beautiful city of Florence, hosted by the University of Florence from May 29th to 31st. The event gathered experts from around the world for a unique opportunity to discuss the latest developments in wind energy science, covering topics from aerodynamics, aeroelasticity, and aeroacoustics to wind resource assessment, wakes, and wind farms, including offshore wind, measurement, and testing among others. It provided a platform for engaging discussions and practical approaches aimed at advancing wind energy science.

With over 700 participants, including professionals, researchers, and industry leaders, this three-day symposium served as a central hub for driving advancements in wind energy science. CENER and DTU, partners from the AIRE Project, actively contributed to the event by presenting two posters and leading two presentation sessions, sharing their latest research findings and advancements in various topics. These contributions highlighted our commitment to driving progress in wind energy technology and shaping the future of sustainable energy solutions.
