Bergen Offshore Wind Centre

Bergen Offshore Wind Centre (BOW) is established by the University of Bergen in order to coordinate and strengthen the research and education in offshore wind energy.

The centre has three focus areas: Wind resources, Site selection and Wind farm operations.

Our mission:
To be a resource centre contributing research and education at a high international level. We address aspects related to resources, environment and technical solutions, as well as legal, economic and social aspects of offshore wind energy. We provide professional support and advice to industry, authorities and the society at large, as well as mobilizing and making UiB’s multi-discipline competence more visible.
