WIRE Laboratory (Wind Engineering and Renewable Energy Laboratory):
We aim to improve our understanding of the flow phenomena involved in wind energy, such as the interaction between wind and turbines, allowing for a better planning and operation of wind farms.
This booth is part of the larger exhibition presenting the projects of nearly 40 EPFL laboratories related to climate change issues. This exhibition is structured around four themes:
• Renewable energies and towards net-zero emissions
• Sustainable construction
• Transforming cities and territories
• Protection and management of natural resources
Researchers from fields as diverse as civil engineering, architecture and environmental sciences will present their work and the tools they use on a daily basis.
