Expert Opinions, Political Consulting, Conferences & Working Groups. For those countries which are beginning to get engaged in wind energy, DEWI is well accepted as a company which is able to provide neutral, manufacturer independent information and consultancy. Even political, legal and administrative information can be provided by DEWI, because it actively participated in all the discussions concerning these areas in Germany during the last years.
DEWI experts are actively participating in various working groups concerned with the optimisation and further development of wind turbines or their components, such as the Competence Group Wind Energy 'Rotorblatt Allianz', which aims at analysing existing problems and developing proposals for pre-competitive research in the field of rotor blades of wind turbines. In particular, the group focuses on an exchange of rotor blade manufacturing industry, harmonisation of test methods and the formulation of research projects related to rotor blade testing. In the field of rotor blade materials representative semi-finished product industry also participates in the group.
Since 1992, DEWI has been organising the International Technical Wind Energy Conference (DEWEK) taking place every two years. Two days of concentrated wind energy technology and research are an attractive programme for more than 600 conference participants from about 30 countries.
After the conference, papers and posters are published in the DEWEK proceedings.
