DTU Wind and Energy Systems create value for society

With the merger of DTU Wind Energy and the Center for Electricity and Energy, Denmark has an institute that matches the development in the green transition.

On 1 March this year, DTU Wind Energy and DTU's Center for Electricity and Energy merged and became DTU Wind and Energy Systems - a department that embraces several aspects of society's challenges of converting to green energy.

Peter Hauge Madsen is now director of a new and larger department with a broader professionalism than what he has so far headed. And the new constellation pleases the department director.

“It has been a long-cherished wish both from DTU Wind Energy and from the center that we should strengthen the collaboration. So the merger is a realization of that desire, ”says Peter Hauge Madsen.

The current circumstances in Europe and the government's desire to turbo-charge the green transition with a significantly greater production of renewable energy also place demands on the institute, which is one of the world leaders in the field.
