Torque 2015

The Science of making Torque from Wind 2014

The Science of Making Torque from Wind is one of the most important scientific wind energy conferences. This is the fifth time that this conference is organized, and the second time to be organized at the Technical University of Denmark. All papers are hosted by IOP.

The conference was co-organized together with the Center for Computational Wind Turbine Aerodynamics and Atmospheric Turbulence.

Dates: from 17 - 20 June 2014
Location: Technical University of Denmark, Anker Engelundsvej 1, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby, Copenhagen
