43rd Risø symposium on Materials Science: Composite for Wind Energy: Manufacturing, Operation and End-of-life.

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


The focus of the 43rd Risø Symposium is on composites for wind energy. This symposium takes a life cycle perspective and addresses manufacturing, performance during operation and end-of-life of composites for wind energy. Over the last 40 years, wind turbine blades have grown an order of magnitude. Today, the longest blades are exceeding 100 meters and weighing 50 tons. Because of this growth in blade size, the cost of wind energy can now compete with fossil-based energy sources on market terms.

As society is thriving towards a zero-emission future, the wind energy sector is foreseen to further expand. Longer wind turbine blades with improved overall lifetime, reliability, recyclability, sustainability, operability and maintainability are some of the objectives set on this component. To address these upcoming and ambitious requirements, the symposium welcomes contribution dedicated to the manufacturing, the operation and performance, as well as end-of-life strategies for wind turbine blades.
