Wind Integration Simulations PIRE

WINDINSPIRE is a NSF-supported international collaboration that addresses, primarily through computer simulations, the pressing research questions that arise when adding inherently intermittent wind sources to power systems. With billions of dollars to be invested in renewable power, improved understanding and better tools for effective use of sustainable but intermittent power sources are crucial.WINDINSPIRE facilitates international research experiences by graduate students, postdocs, undergraduate students and faculty with our international partners in Denmark, Switzerland, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and Norway. In the US, WINDINSPIRE joins researchers at the Johns Hopkins University’s E2SHI, Texas Tech University, Smith College, the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Michigan.

News & Announcements:
