The strong growth and dynamic development of the international wind energy market leads to a high demand for research and services. Because of DEWI‘s participation and membership in a large number of research groups, our staff have acquired extensive knowledge about scientific, technological and political issues.

One of the current focal subjects is the development of offshore wind energy, which is investigated intensively and analysed with regard to possible technical risks and requirements using the research platform FINO installed in the North Sea 45 km north of Borkum, next to the German Offshore Testsite.
