Wind Energy - Athens
The National Technical University of Athens is the foremost Technological Institution of Greece. It has been a member of EUREC Agency since 1997. NTUA has been involved for a long time in education and research activities related to renewable energy sources.
Research and education on Renewable Energy Sources is conducted primarily by the Renewable Energy Sources Unit (RENES) and the School of Mechanical Engineering. In particular, the Fluids Section, the Wind Energy Laboratory (WEL) and the Aerodynamics Laboratory have significant research activities on the field of wind energy.
National Technical University of Athens, offers Wind Specialization in the framework of the EUREC master, since the beginning of the master in 2003. Professor Zervos and the Wind Energy Laboratory (WEL) of the Fluids Section in the School of Mechanical Engineering are responsible for the coordination of the course. The Wind Energy specialization is taught mostly by professors from the Renewable Energy Sources Unit (RENES). Currently, professors from the School of Mechanical Engineering, the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the School of Chemical Engineering, the Center of Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES) and visiting professors participate and provide lectures on their special fields. The Center for Renewable Energy Sources (CRES) also contributes to the course through teaching and use of its laboratories. During the semester the students have the opportunity to visit Wind Farms and the premises of CRES. Finally, individual seminars are held by representatives of the industry and visiting professors from European Universities.
