    The history of modern wind energy has demonstrated the impressive development in cost reduction, scale, capacity and deployment driven by an intelligent combination of technological development and policies. Today we are witnessing a paradigm shift in the development of wind energy towards a technology that will take on the responsibility for contributing significantly to reaching a low-carbon energy system. The future development will be even more dramatic and will need ambitious and continuous public and private investment in RD&D, as well as strong engagement and cooperation in the further development of wind energy technologies and systems. In this report, DTU Wind Energy aims to present our RD&D perspectives on how wind energy can accelerate the energy transition.
