WindScanner.eu is a joint European distributed research infrastructure for wind energy that is on the EFSRI Roadmap 2010, and is seen as strategically important by SINTEF Energi and other leading wind energy research institutes in Europe.
SINTEF Energi p articipates in the WindScanner Praparatory Phase (PP) project as a national hub, representing all relevant Norwegian research institutes. Our participation receives partial funding from the European Commission. We seek additional funding from the Research Council of Norway to support our role as a national coordinator; to enable the creation and coordination of a national network; participate in the scientific development of upgraded wind scanner technology; and to clarify how a future Norwegian WindScann er node will be. If granted, this additional funding will increase the overall project funding from 65% to 75%.
