Research seminar on sustainable composite materials for wind blades, jointly organised by Bristol Composites Institute and ORE Catapult.
About this event
The Wind Blade Research Hub (WBRH) is a five-year research partnership between the ORE Catapult and the University of Bristol. The overarching objective of the WBRH is to support and fund wind turbine blade research that will increase the environmental and financial sustainability of wind energy. The research outcomes will accelerate uptake of new technologies and advance future offshore wind blade design and manufacture.
The Bristol Composites Institute (University of Bristol) and the ORE Catapult are excited to announce this virtual seminar, which will present innovative research on sustainable composite materials for wind turbine blades, aiming to draw together the challenges and the solutions.
