Three research programs carried out publicly-funded wind energy research in 2020: Vindval, Swedish Wind Power Technology Centre (SWPTC), and VindEL. All three programs were under the supervision of the Swedish Energy Agency.
Vindval is a research program focused on studying the environmental effects of wind power. The program is financed by the Swedish Energy Agency and administrated by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
The Swedish Wind Power Technology Centre (SWPTC) is research center that focuses on optimizing wind turbine design taking into account the interaction between all components.
The program VindEL runs from 2017-2021. The program focuses on finding technical solutions within the three priority areas defined in Sweden’s strategy for wind power.
