From 2016, new undergraduate and postgraduate courses on Wind Energy are available at ANU. The Wind Energy course covers the full spectrum of wind energy from the underlying physics of wind and wind generation technologies, to practical issues including site prospecting, project financing, regulation and societal aspects. The course is delivered in collaboration between ANU Energy academics and Windlab, an innovative wind energy company based in Canberra, which was a winning bidder in the 2015 ACT Government 200MW Wind Energy Reverse Auction.
In addition to meeting the demand for up-to-date, structured knowledge in wind energy, the course cements scientific collaboration between ANU and Windlab and opens up prospects for students to undertake research internships with Windlab as part of their degree. More information (PDF, 284KB)
