Founded in 2011, the WindForS wind energy research cluster includes more than 20 groups at seven universities and research institutions in Germany. We’re pooling our capabilities in wind energy research and education.


Each member brings unique capabilities to WindForS. Our expertise covers the whole wind energy system, including wind turbines, the electricity grid, people, and the environment.


We work on projects with other researchers and industry. Our projects address issues like  social acceptance, optimization, and how to integrate wind energy in to the energy system.
