This year’s Symposium on Materials Science will focus on ’Materials and design for next generation wind turbine blades’, and it takes place from Monday September 7 to Thursday September 10 2020 at DTU Risø Campus.

DTU Wind Energy invites you to participate in this year’s Risø International Symposium on Materials Science. It is the 41st time that DTU Wind Energy offers the symposium.

This year, the theme is ‘Materials and design for next generation wind turbine blades’. Lars Pilgaard Mikkelsen, who is responsible for the course says:

“The Symposium presents an exciting theme on requirements for materials and design for next generation wind turbine blades, and we are proud to present a great list of invited speakers.”

About the symposium

The focus of the 41st Risø Symposium is new requirements for materials and design for next generation of wind turbine blades. Over the last 40 years, wind turbine blades have grown an order of magnitude. Today, the longest blades are exceeding 100 meters and weighing 50 tons. Because of this growth in blade size, the cost of wind energy can now compete with fossil-based energy sources on market terms. Together with a wish in society for a zero-emission future, the wind energy sector is foreseen to further expand. This will require new solutions and approaches for next generation of wind turbine blades, such as improved mechanical performance and structural reliability, coupled to more sustainable solutions including end-of-life considerations.
