It is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd edition of the Wind Energy Science Conference (WESC) organised by ForWind and Leibniz University Hannover, which will take place from 25 – 28 May 2021. The biennial WESC is an international conference initiated by the European Academy of Wind Energy (EAWE). The past conferences took place at DTU, Technical University of Denmark (Lyngby, 2017), and at UCC, University College Cork (Cork, 2019).

We are looking forward to welcoming more than 700 scientists in the field of wind energy to present their latest findings and meet across traditional scientific borders. The conference covers all scientific topics in wind energy.

In view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and after careful consideration, we have decided to organise WESC 2021 as a web conference.

The conference is organised in cooperation with the open-access journal Wind Energy Science, and we welcome you as a speaker at WESC to submit a full paper based on your work after the conference.  


Please take a look at the conference programme. At WESC 2021 we will have about 770 presentations (10 different time slots) in 153 parallel sessions, organised in 10 conference themes with regular sessions and 67 mini-symposia.

In addition, you can join 5 keynotes, 7 parallel laboratory talks (3 different time slots) and 2 panel discussions at WESC 2021.

The schedule of presentations (with corresponding times) will be available shortly. We ask for your patience and understanding!
