Research interests: wind energy; wind speed simulation; wind turbines


Wind energy has experienced an important evolution since the last decade at a global level. Its incorporation in most of the electrical power systems is a fact, and the percentage of its share in the energy mix of some countries has risen up to high levels. This must be reinforced due to the need of decarbonizing the economy in the future and, as a consequence, energy uses. This evolution has also partly been accompanied by the necessity of increasing energy independence in many countries. This has led many scientific and technical developments to discover new ways of energy production. This has been achieved with the great efforts of many researchers and technologists. The aim of this collection is to host papers on different issues regarding this exciting history. Therefore, papers exploring wind energy-related fields can be submitted to this collection.
