Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology
Partner Short Name: IWES
Brief Description of Organization:
The new Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology IWES was founded January 1, 2009. It has arisen from the Fraunhofer CWMT in Bremerhaven, a joint center from Fraunhofer IFAM in Bremen and Fraunhofer LBF in Darmstadt and will be expanded by merging with the Institute for Solar Energy Supply Technology ISET in Kassel. Thus, it offers research and development along the value chain of wind turbines from material development to grid integration. Fraunhofer IWES project groups in Hanover and Oldenburg will complete the spread of offers of the institute. Furthermore, the Fraunhofer IWES is going to work in close collaboration with the “northern universities” in Hanover, Bremen and Oldenburg as well as the university in Kassel.
